BARRHEAD motorists are to be hit by more roadworks this month on both major routes and residential streets.

Main Street is facing four weeks of work from Scottish Water, starting anytime between February 10 and 18.

And, next week, the water firm is doing three days of work at Levern Bridge, at Cross Arthurlie Street.

It comes as drivers already face two months of disruption at Hurlet Cross as Glasgow City Council install new traffic lights.

A spokesman for Scottish Water said: “We will be working on a short section of Main Street to repair a damaged sewer three metres below the road.

“Some parking and lane restrictions will be required to complete this work, which is anticipated to take up to four weeks.

“At the same time we will be working for three days in a section of Cross Arthurlie Street to carry out a CCTV survey of the sewer to help inform the need for future work. We have planned this work outwith peak times, from 9.30am to 3pm, and also during the school half-term break, to minimise local disruption.

“This work is part of a £1.2million investment in the area by Scottish Water to improve the sewer network and help improve the environment of the Levern Water in Barrhead.”

Netherton Drive was closed from January 10 for Scottish Water works underway until March 16.

Meanwhile, Scottish Gas Networks still has work ongoing in Campbell Drive, Weir Avenue and Arthurlie Street, where they first started in August 2019.

A spokeswoman said their upgrades to the gas network in the area were expected to be finished by March 30.

Separately, part of Springfield Drive, between Fenwick Drive and Firbank Terrace, will be closed by East Renfrewshire Council for five days from February 17 to allow utility works.

And part of Newton Avenue, from the junction with Larchwood Terrace, will be closed for a day on February 21. 

Diversions will be in place for both projects.
