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.
