Road Closures Summer 2013

This summer Lye Brae, one of the main roads which bypass Kildrum, will be closed for around 18 weeks, from early June until mid-September.

The closure will allow the two footbridges which cross the road, between Millcroft Road and Corbiston Way, to be strengthened and resurfaced, with the existing bridge decks being removed to allow the work to take place.

North Lanarkshire Council state that the work has been scheduled to be carried out over the school summer holidays to “minimise the disruption to pupils at the nearby Cumbernauld High”.

As the road is a key route from the Town Centre to Abronhill, and South Carbrain; and from these locations to Seafar, Cumbernauld Village, the Town Centre, and the M80; we expect to see a sharp increase in traffic along Kildrum Ring Road as a result.

Changes to Bus Services

Over the weekend FirstBus reduced their services in the area when they cancelled the X4 and X80 services and reduced the 36 to a morning service only. The X5 is still available from Kildrum but only every 30 minutes off-peak on weekdays.

However, Stagecoach have countered the FirstBus service reduction by increasing their own services, with a new X25A which will serve Kildrum before heading along North Carbrain Road. The new X25/X25A Stagecoach timetable can be downloaded by clicking here [PDF] [2.12Mb].
