A GARNOCK Valley gran has called on North Ayrshire Council to do something to slow vehicles down on the road where kids walk each morning to go to school.

Brenda Buchanan said she has contacted the council about the issue but nothing has been done to sort out the speed of vehicles, with the railings on the road sporting a number of dents where motors have hit it.

Now she wants the council to take responsibility and action to ensure a serious accident doesn’t occur.

Brenda told the Herald: “The bends need ironed out or the road needs bumps added to it. I have complained to North Ayrshire Council’s roads department about it.

“This is for everyone’s children, I think there has been more than a dozen incidents on the road and it needs straightened and relaid to help slow people down.

“It seems like every time we pass there is another dent on the railing.”

Brenda has also contacted local Independent Councillor Donald L Reid in regards to the issue and she that he was going to take it forward to relevant people at NAC.

The council said that over the last three years there had been five reported accidents on the road but denied having received any complaints.

A spokesperson said: “We have no record of receiving any complaints regarding the B777.

“There have been five road traffic accidents reported between 2015 and 2018, with each of these incidents having been discussed with Police Scotland.”

A spokesperson for North Ayrshire Police said:”Police Scotland can confirm that they have attended a number of accidents along the B777 between Beith and Glengarnock over the last three years. Kilbirnie based officers, along with specialist roads policing officers regularly conduct high-visibility patrols along this and other roads within the Garnock Valley.”

“Police have also been working closely with partners within Garnock Community Campus to educate our your residents about road safety, and responsible road use. This resulted in P5-6, S2 and S6 pupils participating in a road safety event where they heard inputs from partner agencies and got to see the equipment and vehicles used by the emergency services.”

“We would ask that anyone with concerns about the manner of driving on this road to report them to us by contacting 101”
