Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Parkhead’s Christmassy air sampler

These lights have been strung across Burgher Street at Parkhead Cross for years.

I’m sure they were trashed (forget why) a few years ago, were cleared away, then reappeared a while ago.

The thing standing in the middle of the (closed) street below these lights is a remote air sampling device, connected into a nationwide network of similar devices sampling air and measuring its quality are numerous key locations around the country, and used to carry out ongoing monitoring of pollution levels.

Seeing it under these lights always makes me smile when I pass.

There are some sets of proper Christmas lights a few metres away, strung across the main roads leading to the cross, but there seems to be something wrong with them, as they’ve not been on when I’ve been there recently, so no chance of grabbing a pic.
