Royal Mail plan to close the Cubie Street sorting office serving over 25,000 people in one of the most deprived areas of Glasgow. In a city containing the highest percentage of non-drivers in the U.K. they plan to move the facility three miles to the east in Cambuslang, to an area where the nearest bus stop is twenty minutes walk away through an industrial estate. There has been no consultation with the public, nor with elected officials, yet postmen have been told the move is scheduled for January. The current sorting office is exceptionally well used, and for those without online access it's currently difficult enough to arrange a redelivery. The alternative of delivering to a local post office for a fee of £1.50 is seen by many as an attempt to raise company profits via the poorest people in Scotland.
