Partial closure of Cathcart Road

Clarkston Road

The works to upgrade the sewer network involve road closures and began on Monday 6 June.

What We Are Doing

Repair work will be carried out on the existing sewer network which will also be re-lined and reinforced.

The project will be carried out in two phases to enable an initial repair on the sewer in Clarkston Road.

From Monday 6 June for approximately six weeks the inside lane of Clarkston Road southbound from Spean Street/Old Castle Road to Margaretta Buildings will be closed. During this time, vehicle access to the business car park opposite Holmhead Crescent will be possible from 6pm – 7.30am, pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.

During the second phase of work – from Monday 4 July - the closure will be extended to Newlands Road including both lanes of the southbound carriageway of Clarkston Road for approximately eight weeks. The northbound carriageway will be unaffected.

In this phase of the works there will be occasions when teams will work seven days a week between 8am and 8pm. Due to the site location, there will be no vehicle access to Margaretta Buildings and properties to the rear during site working hours to ensure the safety of drivers and workers.

Why We Are Doing It

Historically, the area has been prone to sewer flooding during times of heavy rainfall.

This project will address long-standing internal flooding issues for properties in the area.

Once complete, the upgrades to the local sewer network will help reduce the risk of sewer flooding and make a real difference to properties which have been affected in the past
