What we are doing

We are advising road users in South West Glasgow of a road closure to enable work to improve our service to customers to be carried out safely.

A short section of Edmiston Drive in Ibrox will be closed, from its junction with Paisley Road West to its junction with Ibroxholm Avenue, from Monday 28th February for five weeks to enable pipe testing and site investigation work to be carried out.

A diversion route will be signposted, we have liaised with Glasgow City Council’s roads department while planning our work and road traffic management.

There will be an increase in traffic along the diversion route, road-users and spectators travelling by road to and from football matches at Ibrox Stadium are advised to allow extra time for their journeys.

We have also liaised with Rangers Football Club and information about the road closure will be provided inside the stadium on match days.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank affected road users in advance for their patience and understanding.

Why are we doing it

The pipe testing and site investigation work is part of the Glasgow Resilience Project, which involves the installation of seven miles of new pipes to connect the Glasgow area’s water network and the system in Ayrshire.

This will 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.
