Work to begin on new £80,0000 BMX bike park for youngsters in Bearsden

Contractors are due to start work on a new £80,000 BMX bike park in Bearsden on Monday.

The work is expected to take a couple of months to complete at the Langfaulds Park site.

Councillor Ashay Ghai, convener of the council’s neighbourhood services committee said: “All being well, the local community should have a brand new BMX track in a couple of months. Although already well used by local people, the new facility will make the park a more attractive proposition for young people looking for something interesting.We talked extensively to the local community last year about our plans, including pupils from Bearsden Academy.”
