Fallen trees warning at Milngavie reservoirs

SCOTTISH Water is advising people in the Milngavie area to avoid public footpaths around the Mugdock and Craigmaddie reservoirs which have been affected by fallen trees.

The footpaths, which are popular with local residents, including walkers, joggers and people with dogs, have been affected by a number of trees, or parts of trees, which fell during the stormy weather last week.

These include a tree which fell on Commisioners Road, which runs from the old water treatment works to Strathblane Road and is used by pedestrians, and number of other trees which have been damaged, mainly around Craigmaddie reservoir and at Barrachan.

A spokesman for Scottish Water said: “We are trying to get these removed as quickly as possible but contractors are stretched at the moment dealing with the aftermath of the storm.

“We would advise members of the public not to use the affected paths and roads for their own safety until the trees have been removed and to exercise caution if they are in the affected areas. We thank them for their cooperation.”
