Water works in Bearsden will lead to traffic disruption

MAJOR water works are set to take place in Bearsden aimed at improving the quality of supply to 600 homes.

Scottish Water will replace 250 metres of concrete mains with new, plastic mains in the Allander Road area.

The work, which is due to start on September 17 and is expected to be completed in about four weeks.

Utility bosses warned there will be some traffic disruption, with temporary traffic lights being placed on Allander Road.

Work will take place on Allander Road from near its junction with Spey Road to near its junction with Deveron Road and it will also involve work in a lane in North View.

Scottish Water is carrying out the £30,000 project in advance of planned road resurfacing work by East Dunbartonshire Council.

The utility is advising customers in the affected area that they may experience some disruption to their normal water supply during the work but they will be given advance notice of this.
