First paragraph: Glasgow is a city of transport innovation. It is home to the third oldest underground railway in the world, opened in 1896. It has by far the most extensive urban motorway network in the UK, the product of a tradition of strong regional planning that dates back almost a century. It pioneered the pedestrianisation of key city centre streets from the 1970s, such that the city's showpiece thoroughfare, Buchanan Street, has won international awards for the quality of its public realm.
