There will be a chance to take part in a guided tour of the new road on Sunday, November 21, at 1.30pm.

Team leaders from Kirkintilloch’s Initiative (KI) will explain the road’s special features and measures taken to protect the surrounding environment – including the enhanced Millersneuk Wetland, otter fencing and mammal ledges.

Special buses will leave from Tom Johnston House and enter the Link Road at Hornshill Roundabout.  There will be several stops to point out features of the road and the environment and the tour will end at Townhead, before returning to Tom Johnston House.
There may still be time to register for the guided tours.  Phone  0141 578 8272 or email sandra.adams@eastdunbarton.gov.uk

Gadloch record broken again

Gadloch Jan 26

Water levels on the Gadloch broke all previous records at the end of the cold spell towards the end of January and the levels are rising week by week.  The boundary fence beside the footpath is completely submerged and has fallen over.  Floods are close to Crosshill Road and have spread right across the Golf Course, almost to Auchinloch Road.  The owners of the land and the outflow tunnel have agreed to investigate suspected blockages in the tunnel.  However, this is difficult as the outflow manhole is well submerged and the first of the several airshafts on the tunnel crossing to Boghead Wood is also flooded to the top.
