Alexandra Parade Railway Station
The temporary red and white barrier running along Alexandra Parade at the pavement near the stairs to the station was damaged and has been replaced by a permanent one.
Ticket machines are now installed on both platforms of the station. Passengers disembarking at Queen Street station no longer have to join long queues to pay for a ticket to exit the turnstyles.
Cashback to the Future
A free summer programme organised by Impact Arts for 14-19 year olds starts 11th July 2017 to 4th August 2017. The workshops will be held at The Factory, 319 Craigpark Drive, Dennistoun and offers an excellent opportunity to work with professionals in a range of artforms. The programme is funded through the Scottish Government's Cashback for Communities programme which uses the proceeds of crime to back community projects.
