People are invited to share their opinions on a new road that will redirect traffic from Bishopbriggs town centre.

Residents, businesses and groups can take part in a consultation which aims to boost business opportunities and cut congestion.

A public drop-in event is being held on Monday, June 19, between 5pm and 8pm, at Bishopbriggs War Memorial Hall, Balmuildy Road G64 3BS. 

The new Westerhill Development Road (WDR), previously Phase five of the Bishopbriggs Relief Road, is part of the council's £34.88 million Place and Growth Programme.

There are five options for a new stretch of road starting just north of the Westerhill railway bridge at Lochgrog Roundabout and tying in with the A803 Kirkintilloch Road.

Councillor Gordan Low, leader of East Dunbartonshire Council, said: "We're inviting local residents, landowners, businesses and road users to view and comment on initial route options developed for the WDR.

"Whilst consultations have already been held in connection with the wider East Dunbartonshire City Deal Place and Growth Programme, including the Westerhill Masterplan, this will be the first to focus specifically on the WDR. I hope as many people as possible can get involved.

"As well as a new road and the promotion of sustainable travel options, which aim to reduce congestion in Bishopbriggs town centre, the project will also involve investment in an upgraded Torrance Roundabout."
