Dear Broomhouse we need your help

Broomhouse Community Council are very low in members. Unless new people join the council,  unfortunately, we will have no choice but to disband the council. 

The general purpose of a Community Council is to ascertain, co-ordinate and express the wider views of the entire community within its boundaries. We also represent the community to the council on such matters as planning applications.

All that is required as a member is for you to attend the meetings during the year and help with events it is not too time consuming at all.

We normally meet the last Monday of every second month and our main focus is to represent the community at a local council level. In addition we arrange regular clean up days, Christmas parties and Summer fetes.

We have two more meetings this year. If anyone is interested in joining please come along.

Our next meetings are

Monday 01/10 at 19:30 and

Monday 29/10 at 19:30 (We will also be holding the AGM prior to this meeting at 19:00)

Kingston Bridge: M8 Newton Street On Ramp Refurbishment

Cope & Parapet Works

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, is proposing essential bridge refurbishment of the Kingston Bridge at the M8 Newton Street On Ramp.

The works will involve the removal of the original cope and parapet and the replacement of these with a design complying with modern standards.

We expect this extensive refurbishment programme will take up to 12 weeks to complete, commencing in late Autumn/Winter.

Traffic management solutions

In order to complete these works as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a series of traffic management solutions including running narrow lanes between 0600 and 2200.

Full overnight closures of the structure are also proposed between 2200 and 0600 each evening.
