Road-users in Glasgow are being advised of some road traffic management while we progress with upgrades to our waste water infrastructure which will improve the natural environment in the River Clyde.
Contractors working for Scottish Water are due to start work on Monday August 25 to install a new Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) chamber and pipework in Clyde Place, during improvement work which will form part Scottish Water’s major investment in the Greater Glasgow area’s waste water infrastructure announced in February 2013.
The overall £250m investment, the biggest in the Greater Glasgow area’s waste water network in more than a century, will improve river water quality and the natural environment of the River Clyde and its tributaries, enable the area to grow and develop, alleviate sewer flooding and deal with the effects of increased rainfall and climate change.
To enable us to progress with our work in Clyde Place, a section of the street will require to be closed for about 12 weeks from Monday.
Clyde Place from its junction with Commerce Street to its junction with Bridge Street will be closed for the duration of the work.
Local diversions will be in operation and the road closure will not affect north-bound traffic using Commerce Street to travel into the city centre or south-bound traffic using Bridge Street to travel out of the city centre.
We have liaised with Glasgow City Council’s roads department.
Mr Mark Maclaren, Scottish Water’s regional communites team manager, said: “Scottish Water’s investment in improvements to our infrastructure in the Clyde Place area will deliver major environmental benefits for years to come and we know that local people and road-users will appreciate that any short-term inconvenience will be far out-weighed by the long-term benefits to the environment this project will deliver.”"
