PEOPLE living under the flightpath in Clydebank have been given a boost from airport bosses.

BAA, which owns Glasgow Airport, has donated £15,000 for a bike track to be developed in Whitecrook Park.

The cash has come from the BAA Communities Trust which supports community projects around all of BAA’s airports.

The bike track will be the latest in a number of improvements to the park instigated by residents that have included a play park, toddler area and ball courts.

Oonagh Coultas, a member of the Whitecrook Park Project, said: “Our park are grateful for the contribution towards its development. It’s great to see lots of families and young people using the park.”

Amanda McMillan, managing director at Glasgow Airport, said: “We are fully committed to supporting initiatives, like the Whitecrook Park Project, that help improve the quality of facilities for families and young people.”

Clydebank MSP, Des McNulty, helped the residents secure the funding. He said: “It’s exactly the kind of community project I think BAA should be supporting, recognising that Whitecrook and adjacent areas are among the places most affected by the proximity of the airport.”
