The team have liaised with Glasgow City Council’s roads department when planning the road traffic management, apologise for any inconvenience and thank affected road users in advance for their patience and understanding.

A reader is in support of Crow Lane road closure to traffic.

A diversion route will be in place via Paisley Road West and Mosspark Drive. Local access will be maintained for residents and emergency services. Footpaths will remain open.

Why is it happening? The road closure will enable Scottish Water to carry out important work to install sections of water main as part of the Glasgow Resilience Project, which involves the installation of seven miles of new pipes.

The new mains 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, and is expected to be completed in 2023.

Local residents can ask the project team questions about the project via a live chat which is scheduled to take place on a virtual information platform at on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 January, 8am – 5pm.
