Rosshall Park Temporary Road

Does anyone have any information about the road closure that affected the railway bridge at the bottom of ~Cardonald Place Road into Moulin Circus that was completed about 2 years ago. The road was closed for about a year.
When did the works start ? Who put the road in through the park and who took it out?

Did planning permission have to be granted for this?

I walk my dog down there every day and wonder about how it all worked.

I know that Carrillion carried out the works on the bridge but know no more than that.

Any information or pictures would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry, I don't know anything about it. But I could make a suggestion... pop a little letter off to Carillion and ask them. They can only say no

Did that about something else .... lol and they did indeed say no

Which reminds me ...
The state were  going to take the east coast back from the bearded one...
Do you think the tories will get rid of it again under privatisation

Re: Rosshall Park Temporary Road

Hi I can see the park from my house and I walk to the shops on paisley rd every day past it.
The road to moulin circus was shut by the council until the bridge works could be completed, and the council put in a temporary road through the park that connected to crookston rd.
I don't have any pictures of before and after but the temp road was dug up and replaced with grass and you'd never know a road had been there.

It's still fairly evident by the colour change in the grass I am sure an ariel photograph would confirm this as it can be seen from cab hieght.

Contact the local Councillor his name is Alistair Watson and can be contacted Mon -Fri by phoning 0141 287 2000 you will be put through to his Secretary. Alternatively email him at Alistair.Watson@glasgow.gov.uk
I am sure he will know what is happening and if he doesn't he will be happy to find out. He helped set up the Friends of Rosshall Park. I am sure anything that would have an impact on the park will interest him.
