Save Broomielaw protest mounted

Save Broomielaw protest mounted
A group of protesters angered at plans to erect a series of leisure ‘pods’ along the Broomielaw waterfront have staged a protest at the scene of their angst.

Around three dozen people assembled near the Tradeston Bridge to express their opposition to the plans, waving banners reading “Don’t break the Broomielaw.

The two hour occupation of the public space was designed to galvanise public support against the plans and alert passing office workers to what is being built.

Led by the New Glasgow Society the Save Broomielaw group have set out three key areas from which they believe the GD Lodge designed scheme fails; a “lumpen and inelegant” design, “inappropriate” materials and an “ill considered” approach to context.

I know they did recent maintenance on the Kingston bridge, but geez, I think it looks awful. For such a prominent structure in Glasgow, I wish it looked better.

Those are some of the worst banners i've ever seen - 'Save the Broo? '
