MSP Gil Paterson: 'Residents and businesses will be relieved at plans to reopen Kilbowie Road after sink hole repairs finished by council six weeks earlier'
MSP Gil Paterson has welcomed the reopening of Kilbowie Road after a collapsed mine shaft caused a sink hole on the busy section.
The Coal Authority finished its work at the mine shaft in April, then West Dunbartonshire Council finished the work ahead of schedule due a good spell of weather.
The Clydebank MSP said: “I am sure the residents and businesses in the area will be, as I am, extremely relieved that Kilbowie Road will be reopening after weeks of closure.
“Well done to the council and Coal Authority for getting this sink hole situation resolved six weeks ahead of schedule. Given the serious of this collapsed mine shaft under the road, this is an impressive feat.
“On the whole, this has been a highly complex issue for authorities to deal with and my office has handled multiple cases from residents and businesses regarding it. I am relieved it is coming to a close.”
