SEE 1st Nov UPDATE below
Construction works for the Kirkintilloch Link Road have caused some difficulties for walkers on many popular local paths, but the contractor has responded well to suggestions.  For example, part of the informal path from the Larkfield corner to Woodilee Cottages was obliterated as it cut right across the line of the Link Road.  However, hard core was laid to form a useable footpath on the East side of the Link Road works, to join up with the original path as it goes up the hill.   This remains a much safer alternative to walking on Woodilee Road.

The former Woodilee Hospital site is currently being used for temporary storage of earth from the roadworks and it is now difficult to cross the site in this area.  The situation will gradually improve over the winter as the earth is taken back to form road embankments.

1st Nov updateThe original low-level Railway Path from Garngaber Avenue and the high-level path from Eastern Garngaber are effectively closed for the time being, even when work is not obviously in progress. The earthworks for the Link Road cut across both of these routes and can’t be negotiated at present.  The alternative return route from the diverted Strathkelvin Railway Path is via the access track up from Bothlyn Bank and then along Lindsaybeg Road.

Auchinloch path flooding

Gadloch from Lenzie Golf Course

The Right-of-Way across Lenzie Golf Course to Auchinloch was impassable for all of the most recent winter, due to high water levels in the Gadloch. The flooding receded from April to June, but the quantity of mud deposited on the low-lying part meant that it was very rarely walkable.   The Community Council has an ongoing investigation into the causes.

Three different Councils are involved, together with the landowners and it has not been straightforward to determine responsibilities for the various factors that have led to the flooding.  East Dunbartonshire Council have designated the part of this path that lies within their territory as a Core Path and North Lanarkshire Council have been encouraged to so designate the remainder to Langmuirhead Road.  Auchinloch Community Council are also keen to see an improvement, as is Lenzie Golf Club.

The problem, put simply is that the inflow rate to the loch, via the Standburn, is often greater than the outflow, which goes down through brick manholes into an underground tunnel to the Park Burn. Glasgow Council is responsible for the inflow but claim that the problem is probably due to blockages in the outflow tunnel.  Observations show that this has not been the case recently.  Long standing observers maintain that, whereas flooding used to be a winter problem only, it has got worse since a flood attenuation scheme was created at Robroyston in Glasgow Council’s territory.

Garngaber Avenue and parking problems

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?

Adopt a station

First Scotrail contacted the Community Council to suggest that groups in Lenzie might join Scotrail’s scheme to enhance the appearance of Lenzie Station through flower displays or similar arrangements.  Many stations throughout Scotland have benefited from such treatment.  Scotrail provide the funding and organisations such as Rotary, or local Flower Groups undertake to plan and maintain the displays.  Lenzie Community Council has not so far identified such groups in the community, although a number of individuals have expressed interest.  However, a limited start has been made by establishing a rotation of bulbs and bedding plants in the existing planters on the Station platforms and these have added a touch of colour.
