Kilbirnie shopping centre closer to finished

July 26, 2013

The Bay Road shopping centre has been in upheaval for months now, and it was good to see today that the footpaths are almost complete, cars are parked in the new 60 minute carparking, and buskers and shoppers are back.

I’ve attended a couple of the Kilbirnie Business Network meetings, and have heard from retailers that it has been a stressful time with turnover much reduced… and I’m sure the Council haven’t found it easy either. I’m not sure what the issues were… apparently locating and upgrading underground services (including installing broadband) was more problematic than expected- and getting street levels right difficult.  Hopefully lessons have been learned.

Once its finished, mid August, it is planned to have several events to celebrate the new look and promote the shopping centre. All I can say is- is watch this space!
