And being so close to Partick it would surely have quite an adverse effect on the Dumbarton Road small traders.

I'm not sure that the independent ones will be able to survive. I was out on Dumbarton Road earlier when I went along to the library, and I was surprised at just how busy it was. The farmer's market was on today as well (lots of nice stuff on display!), so that might have contributed.
I'd hate for the area to lose this character and busyness.

This problem doesn't just apply to public transport. East Dumbarton Council have a stated policy of promoting cycling, yet at the same time they're putting speedbumps everywhere and systematically neglecting the roads so that they're full of potholes, as a result the roads are a complete nightmare for cyclists. I asked my elected representative about this contradiction when I wrote to her about transport issues a while ago, but I didn't get any kind of satisfactory answer.
