Potential changes to railway path

EDC is considering plans to upgrade the path that runs on the Moss alongside the railway line, with a view to encouraging more cyclists to use the path. This is part of the Council’s Active Travel Strategy and would include extending the path beyond the Moss to Westerhill Rd. in Bishopbriggs. The proposal for sharing the path with an increased number of cyclists has possible implications for walkers, children and dogs, as well as for the rural nature of the Moss and its wildlife, and we have outlined our concerns to the Council.

The project has been put on hold for the time being, but the Council is undertaking a feasibility study which will be available for consultation.

In the meantime we welcome your comments to our email address or on our Facebook page in anticipation of future discussions.

We will keep you abreast of further developments.

Lenzie Moss Peatland Restoration Project

Work to clear birch scrub that was encroaching on the bog, level the bunds (the ridges between the channels of cut peat left over from the commercial extraction of peat last century), and install additional dams, was completed in 2016. This was financially supported by SNH in furtherance of the Scottish Governments policy of protecting peat bogs.
