The increase in footfall in Shettleston is 340%, and this is commensurate with the overall footfall at Bridgeton, Parkhead and Easterhouse prior to the merger with Shettleston Jobcentre. In line with our forecast for footfall in Shettleston, we have deployed sufficient resource for the number of customers using our services. The service delivery team ensures that waiting times are kept to a minimum, and the same service is delivered to customers who wish to make enquiries or do not have appointments.
