New Wester Way Route Launched In Bishopbriggs

Construction News Image
The new Wester Way travel route has been officially launched in Bishopbriggs.

Running alongside Phase 4 of Bishopbriggs Relief Road, Wester Way provides a new paved path for people walking, cycling and using scooters.

It was developed using funding from Sustrans Scotland's Community Links programme, Strathclyde Partnership for Transport and East Dunbartonshire Council. An all-weather surface was constructed along with several lighting installations.

It follows the route of the old Westerhill Road, between Westerhill Roundabout and Aviva, and uses the previous bridge over the railway line.

The route ties in with the path network developed near Phase Three of Bishopbriggs Relief Road, Kintessack Place and Westerhill Road – providing a key link which supports the Council's Active Travel Strategy.

The new path was opened by Councillor Susan Murray, Vice Convener of Place, Neighbourhood and Corporate Assets alongside the local children who came up with the name and gateway signs.

Councillor Murray said: "Wester Way is a huge improvement – both in terms of safety and accessibility. Previously there was no paved path for pedestrians.

"The new path will make it easier, safer and more appealing for pedestrians, cyclists and people using scooters – encouraging the use of active travel. Well done to all involved for their hard work."

Council-run event Wester Way Family Fun Day took place yesterday, 16 September, to celebrate the new route.
