ANGRY locals say the entrance to Badenoch Road, in Kirkintilloch, is causing damage to vehicles.

One driver told the Herald: “Despite reporting this road to the council several times it is still causing damage to vehicles.

“The road is in such a state that it will no longer sustain the ‘quick fix’ patching work it has had in recent times.

“It needs to be completely complete re-surfaced.”

Victoria Street in Kirkintilloch town centre is also causing problems for motorists.

Another resident got in touch to warn drivers about a massive pothole that can’t be avoided because the road is so narrow.

East Dunbartonshire Council recently announced that an £867,000 fighting fund has been set up to tackle potholes across the district.

A Pothole Action Plan has been drawn up to target the worst hit areas.

David Devine, head of roads and neighbourhood services, said: “Badenoch Road, between Langmuir Road and Lorn Place, is on our roads resurfacing programme and work is scheduled to be carried out this summer. “

He added: “Victoria Street is not on our current roads resurfacing programme, but will continue to be monitored and kept safe in the meantime.”

If there’s a pothole in your area thast is causing concern give the Herald a call and we will highlight and pass the information onto East Dunbartonshie Council.
