Work has been completed on the first phase of the Bears Way project, between Burnbrae and Hillfoot, and the council is now asking people’s views for phase two - from Hillfoot to Kessington.

Residents are being asked to help design a safe cycleway - suitable for everyone - between Milngavie and Glasgow to enable local people to cycle in comfort and safety while also benefiting pedestrians and public transport users.

A drop-in session - open to all members of the public - will take place on Thursday, November 19 at Kessington Public Hall, Bearsden from 3pm to 8pm.

Councillor Alan Moir, Convener of Development and Regeneration, said: “I would urge everyone with an interest in the A81 Bears Way project to come along on November 19 and find out what the second phase will involve.

“This is more than just a cycle route - it’s a unique opportunity to make the area work better for children, residents, businesses and visitors.

“The first phase gives priority to people walking, cycling and taking the bus without reducing traffic or residential parking capacity. We are working hard to take everyone’s views on board, so please get involved to make Milngavie Road work for everyone.

He added: “It’s fantastic to see so many people - of all ages and abilities - using the protected cycleway already, and this is only the first phase. It’s particularly popular with families who would not have

cycled on the A81 previously.”
