SCOTTISH Water will be carrying out works to improve the network in the city's South West which will result in carriageway closures.

The closures will take place on Corkerhill Road at different locations on the north and south-bound carriageways at different times, between Monday and Thursday, March 15 to 18, and on Monday and Tuesday, March 22 and 23.

Scottish Water says the use of contraflow systems will ensure there is two-way traffic in both directions at all times and, to minimise any inconvenience to road users, the road traffic management will be in place only at night time from 9 pm to 6 am.

A spokesman for the utility firm added: "We have liaised with Glasgow City Council’s roads department when planning the road traffic management.

"We apologise for any inconvenience and thank affected road users in advance for their patience and understanding.

"The carriageway closures will enable us to carry out important survey work to check our existing water mains and ground conditions.

"The survey work is part of the Glasgow Resilience Project which involves the installation of seven miles of new pipes, which will connect the Glasgow area’s water network and the system in Ayrshire to increase resilience and protect supplies for about one million customers.

"The new water main is being installed in the Ibrox, Mosspark, Pollok, Priesthill, Nitshill and Parkhouse areas of Glasgow.

"The project is being delivered for Scottish Water by Caledonia Water Alliance, our alliance partner, and is expected to be completed in 2023."
