The final phase of roadworks and closures in Barrhead will start this month in preparation for Taylor Wimpey’s Duncarnock development of new homes.

The housebuilder has confirmed the last part of its significant upgrades to Springfield Road will begin on Monday, September 13 for around eight weeks.

This programme of works forms part of the firm’s planning agreement with East Renfrewshire Council.

It means that a section of Springhill Road between the newly formed 5-Ways Junction and Glanderston Road will be closed to allow this work to be completed.

The firm say that “pedestrian access will be maintained wherever possible” and that when complete the upgrade to local infrastructure will result in “safer road widths, safer pedestrian crossing points, improved road surfaces and better visibility”.

Alison Henderson, special projects manager for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, added: “We would like to thank the local community of Barrhead for their patience since our programme of significant upgrades to Springfield Road, Springhill Road and the 5-Ways Junction began earlier this year.

“I would like to apologise in advance for the inconvenience the next set of local road closures and diversions are likely to cause.

“Please be assured that we will be working with our contractors to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum and local diversion signage will provide clear alternatives for road users.”

Taylor Wimpey West Scotland is building 316 properties on the Duncarnock development.

A range of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes will be built, as well as 25 new homes for social rent in the form of cottage flats, semi-detached and terraced homes.
