Road closure near Banknock for emergency sewer work

19 January 2018



Update 23/01/18 Road traffic management has now been lifted and work has now been completed at Banknock. Thank you for your patience during this essential work.


Road users in the Banknock area are being advised of a road closure to enable Scottish Water to carry out emergency work on a sewer.


A short section of the A803 Kilsyth road in Banknock will be closed from 8am on Saturday the 20th of January for two to three days while a new section of sewer is installed following a collapse.


Scott Fraser, Scottish Water’s corporate affairs regional manager, said: “The nature of where the pipe is situated requires us to close a short section of the Kilsyth road from the Banknock Community Hall to the junction of Bankview Care Home and set up a diversion route.


“Travellers heading west towards Glasgow will be diverted via Bonnybridge, the B816 via Wardpark North, onto Eastfield Road through Carrickstone, onto the B802 towards Croy and then back onto the A803. For drivers heading east, the route is reversed.

“We suggest that southbound travellers on the M80 who are wanting to travel west on the A803 should exit the M80 at junction 6 rather than junction 7.

“Our contractor Kier will be on site and speaking to local businesses affected by the road closure.


“We apologise to local residents, businesses and commuters for the disruption and thank them in advance for their patience and understanding. But this is essential work which must be carried out.”
