A busy and prominent Glasgow road will be partially closed for seven weeks to allow works.

Balmore Road will be reduced to one lane from Monday, July 17.

Traffic across the railway bridge and leaving and entering the business park will be controlled with temporary lights.

Broadholm Street, from Balmore Road to the junction with Lamb Street, will also be shut.

This is while engineers relining the old brick sewer between Balmore Place and the entrance to Parkhouse Business Park, close to Possilpark and Parkhouse train station.

The work is expected to take around seven weeks to complete.

Georgina Reid, Scottish Water’s regional corporate affairs manager in the west, said: “This is an essential piece of work to upgrade the local sewer network, mitigating against flooding or failure.

“We will do all that we can to minimise any disruption and would like to thank residents and road users for their patience and understanding.”
