The construction phase of Scotland's biggest waste water tunnel, which will help tackle flooding and improve river water quality in the Glasgow area, has been completed.

The construction of the tunnel, which runs from Craigton to Queen's Park via Bellahouston and Pollok parks, is a major milestone for one of the most important pieces of waste water management infrastructure installed in Glasgow since Victorian times.

With this key phase of the £100m project now complete, works to dismantle the giant state-of-the-art tunnel boring machine (TBM) and connect the tunnel to the existing waste water network are underway.  

Reinstatement of the site compound area, at the old disused bowling greens at the Langside Road end of the park, will commence in the spring 2018 planting season.

The tunnel is scheduled to becomes operational in summer 2018.
