Station car park on typical weekday

Station car park on typical weekday

Following earlier announcement of a new traffic and parking plan for Lenzie (see East Dunbarton Council micro website) the public consultation meeting  in Lenzie Public Hall on 19th August was packed out.  Every view from scepticism to qualified approval was expressed. 

Only those views and comments that are made via the consultation response form will be considered by the Transportation Planning Team and the deadline for submission is Friday 17th September for the Station Parking Management scheme.  All plans and information are on view in Lenzie Library.

Contrary to some reports,  the plan does NOT incorporate speed bumps and there is no actual narrowing of the road.

A question was asked at the meeting – what traffic reduction on B757 would be expected when the Link Road is open?  A traffic model produced by KI (before the present B757 plan was developed) suggested the following:

Hornshill M80 roundabout to Lenzie Station predicted 60-70% daily reduction
Lenzie Station to Whitegates predicted 52% daily reduction (48% am peak; 29% pm peak)
Whitegates to Donaldson St 39% daily reduction; (30% am peak; 16% pm peak).

New traffic & parking plan

nparkEast Dunbartonshire Council Transportation Group have proposed a new parking and traffic plan for Lenzie.   Under the ‘traffic’ heading, Kirkintilloch and Auchinloch Roads, between Gallowhill Road and Crosshill Road will be ‘visually narrowed’ to slow traffic, encouraging use of the Link Road and leading to a quieter and more pleasant village.

A 2-hour ban on off-street parking in a zone around Lenzie Station will be applied to reduce all-day commuter parking, which has been causing increasing problems for residents and businesses.  This will be combined with plans to create more off-street parking using identified land.  There will be provision for resident parking and other needs.

Detailed plans are given in the Development & Infrastructure Committee June papers.  The plans will be set out for public consultation, probably in early August and necessary Traffic Regulation Orders sought thereafter.  Extensions to off-street parking will take some time to negotiate and implement and the timescale for completion is given as 18-24 months.

Garngaber Avenue and parking problems

Parking Problems

Parking Problems

The current parking prohibition in Garngaber Avenue was applied as a temporary measure to allow safe use during the periods needed for the flow of Link Road construction traffic.

This situation will revert at the end of the temporary period to what it was previously, unless East Dunbartonshire Council apply for and are granted a permanent prohibition order.  Meanwhile, the all-day parked cars that used to be in Garngaber Avenue in a long line, have moved to many other narrow and unsuitable residential streets.  Responsibility for action to solve this problem is shared by several authorities and there seems to be no immediate prospect of answers.  Comments?
