Improving safety at night

Over the last month, I heard about safety concerns from women ranging from speeding cars, inadequate street lighting and house break-ins. 

After attending a talk at Glasgow University, yesterday evening, I completed a walkabout in several streets in Hillhead. I checked for street lighting defects and found 10 lights out in Bank Street, Otago Street, Gibson Street, and Great George Street. These will be reported and fixed in a few days. 

 Street light out in Bank Street.

I will have further discussions with council officials, Hillhead Community Police and people who have highlighted safety issues to ensure that any problems are addressed.

Any street lighting defects can be reported to the lighting faults department at Glasgow City Council.
