Road Traffic Management in South West of Glasgow
What we are doing
Scottish Water is advising road users in south west Glasgow of a key road closure during pipe installation work on a major project to improve the water mains network.
From Monday 10th January for around ten weeks, a section of Corkerhill Road will be closed from its junction with Mosspark Boulevard to its junction with Mosspark Drive.
We have liaised with Glasgow City Council’s roads department when planning the road traffic management.
We apologise for any inconvenience and thank affected road users in advance for their patience and understanding.
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.
The road closure will enable us 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.
The project is being delivered for Scottish Water by Caledonia Water Alliance, our alliance partner, and is expected to be completed in 2023.
Local residents were invited to ask the project team questions about the project via a live chat which was scheduled on our virtual information platform on Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th of January from 8am – 5pm.
