A GLASGOW road which was forced to close due to emergency works has reopened after several weeks.

Glasgow City Council said Bath Street in the city centre has now reopened between Douglas Street and Pitt Street following the works.

It comes after we reported Scottish Water was given emergency permission by the local authority to close the street last month.

The road was closed due to a property experiencing internal sewer flooding which had been caused by a damaged sewer.

It was originally shut on March 18 and was expected to be closed for around 10 weeks.

A Scottish Water spokesperson said: “The site team have worked extremely hard on this complex repair and we are delighted the road has reopened well ahead of our initial timescales.

“Once again, we thank the public and the local business community for their patience and understanding while these essential works were carried out.”
