Road Traffic Management in South West Glasgow

We're 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.


What we are doing

From Monday 10th January for two weeks there will be lane reductions on Linthaugh Road, Braidcraft Road and Corkerhill Road while the new pipe is laid.

Linthaugh Road will  be closed in both directions from Monday 24th January, Braidcraft Road will be reduced to eastbound traffic only and a traffic contraflow system will be in place on the roundabout where they meet. This is to allow the two ends of the new pipe to be connected.

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.

Local access will be maintained for residents and emergency services. Footpaths will remain open and shops on Braidcraft Terrace will be open as usual.

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.

Update January

Residents were invited to ask the project team questions about the project via a live chat which took place on our virtual information platform on Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th January, from 8am – 5pm.
