Water supply improvements

Residents are set to benefit from supplies of clearer, fresher drinking water thanks to improvements to a main supply in Bearsden.

Contractors working for Scottish Water are replacing a short section of the water main in the west of Bearsden, on the footpath between Westbourne Crescent and Abbotsford Road area.

It is expected to be completed in about two weeks.

The footpath will be closed while the work is being done and there are diversions for pedestrians along the south footpath on Abbotsford Road, the west footpath on Nithsdale Crescent, the north footpath on Iain Road and the east footpath on Westbourne Crescent.

Householders in the area have been informed that there might be some temporary disruption to their normal water supply during our work.

However, anyone who is expected to be affected by this will be given at least 48 hours’ notice.

It is possible that local residents will experience low pressure or discoloured water during the work.

If they do, before they use any water they should turn on the cold water tap in their kitchen until the water runs clear.

There might also be some disruption to traffic movement in the area during the work but Scottish water has promised that it will do everything possible to minimise any inconvenience.

Mr Mark Maclaren, Scottish Water’s regional communities team manager, said: “We would like to thank customers, pedestrians and road-users in the area for their understanding and co-operation while we carry out this essential work.”
