A BUSY road in the south of Glasgow will be closed for three months for Scottish Water works.

A section of Pollok's Brockburn Road, from the roundabout near Crookston Castle Primary School to the Peat Road/Bairdcraft Road roundabout, will close on June 27.

This is to allow the installation of new pipes, which the company says would improve the service to customers.

A diversion route, via Crookston Road, will be in operation and signposted.

Scottish Water apologised for the inconvenience and thanked affected road users in advance for their patience and understanding.

They said they have liaised with Glasgow City Council while planning the work and road traffic management.

The installation is part of the Glasgow Resilience Project, which involves the installation of seven miles of new pipes to connect the Glasgow area’s water network and the system in Ayrshire.

This will 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.
