The project will last for approximately four weeks and will begin on Friday 7 February. Drivers within the area should know that Braidholm Road will be closed for two weeks. A signed diversion will be in place for motorists via Fenwick Road and Merrylee Park Avenue.

Then, from Friday 21 February, work will continue at Fenwick Road’s junction with Braidholm Road for the final two weeks of this project. Braidholm Road will be reopened however, a small lane closure in Fenwick Road will be needed to allow our engineers to work safely.

SGN Project Manager Brendan Reid said: “We’ve worked closely with the local authorities in planning this work and we will be doing everything we can to limit disruption during our essential work in Fenwick Road."

“We appreciate that roadworks can be frustrating, however, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means once the work is completed, Giffnock homes and businesses will enjoy the benefits of a continued safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come.”
