Another one bites the dust…

Surprise! Another path gone.

Right of way SM25, which was closed temporarily due to the construction of the new school, appears to have gone to the great park in the sky. The path, which provided part of a direct walking route from Calderbank to Airdrie train station and the town centre, was supposed to be re-instated after the work on the school was completed. It appears that a decision was taken by NLC not to reinstate it, without consulting any local community groups, or other interested parties such as Scotways (the path was not only a core path, but a right of way).

The new railway line, giving direct access to Edinburgh has been a great boon, but for the people of Calderbank, Brownsburn and Chapelhall, their walk to the train station is going be a fair bit longer. Please put pressure on your councillors, who will of course be up for re-election in 2012…

The path which went through here to the old industrial estate doesn't..and won't.
