A warning has been issued as a major road is set to close from tomorrow for a year. 

Work will begin on April 2 to demolish and reconstruct Thornliebank Bridge in a plan by Network Rail to electrify the East Kilbride to Glasgow railway line.

The works will continue until June 2025 and this will affect road users who will be diverted via Thornliebank Road, Rouken Glen Road, Fenwick Road, Kilmarnock Road and Nether Auldhouse Road (and vice versa).


For those who use public transport, they are being reminded that the road closure will result in the diversion of First services 57 and 57A until June 2025.


Network Rail said on April 1: We'll begin replacing the bridge carrying Thornliebank Road over the railway TOMORROW as we electrify the East Kilbride line.

"This means all vehicles, including First Glasgow's 57 and 57A services will be diverted until June 2025."
