On Monday the 25th March Fairfield hosted a public meeting organised by Govan Community Council, the meeting was held due to concerns by the community over ‘Fastlink’ a new dedicated bus link between the city centre and the new Southern General Hospital.
The meeting was attended by more than 60 local residents and some of the objections raised were
- Lack of proper community consultation and information.
- Fear that the creation of bus stops in middle of road in residential area will increase risk of accidents to passengers – especially children, the frail and elderly.
- Failure to properly assess impact on local amenities and local business.
- Failure to respect Govan Conservation Area and its role in regeneration.
