Your University, One Photo at a Time

A Stone Back in Place

A Stone Back In Place Well would you look at that. The curb stone slab (or is it ‘kerb’?) on University Avenue, which I featured last Saturday, the one which had been lodged out of place for who knows how long, is now back where it belongs. After posting the photo on the blog I reported the problem on FixMyStreet.com and through it to the Glasgow City Council. Now, this might be a coincidence, but the problem was fixed some time this week. Go figure.

You’ll notice that the John McIntyre Building is now almost completely covered in the blue tarp on both sides. (The other side can be seen here.)

Thanks Raj for suggesting FixMyStreet.com, guess that site works miracles!

    The OED says that either ‘curb’ or ‘kerb’ can be used, but I think that kerb is more common these days

    And yes, I’ve used FixMyStreet a few times and each time the problem in question has been fixed within a day or two of reporting it.
