Over the last week I have received a number of letters and emails from most of the Councillors in the Airdrie South area and both Karen Whitefield MSP and Alex Neil MSP. In particular Councillor David Fagan has been very helpful in keeping me up to date with what is going on with the bridge.
From what I have been told demolition of the bridge is not yet imminent, as the work must still go to tender and contracts have yet to be drawn up. This should allow some breathing space. In the meantime in addition to the fences at both sides of the bridge, fencing will be erected to stop anyone going below the bridge. With election time upon us it is possible that you may bump in to one of the local councillors, or the candidates for Airdrie MSP. If you do it may be worth mentioning your concerns and getting your point across face to face, to let them know just how concerned people are about saving this bridge and the right of way that relies upon it.
