Since its conception in the sixties, the Glasgow urban motorway network has ben opened in stretches, and one of the most "destructive" sections was at the Charing Cross area. This view from 1971, taken from a then unopened flyover, shows the motorway forging its way towards Charing Cross from St George's Cross, with the complete demolition of one side of St George's Road. LA231, CYS577B, from 1964 is on the long gone service 32, a replacement for tram service 16. While the right hand side of the street remains today, no bus service runs along this road.
