Muirhead Road Bridge Closure:

Thanks everyone for responding to our last post we have forwarded the comments on to Glasgow City Council. Please keep your comments coming in.

Due to the ongoing replacement of the bridge work on Muirhead Road, the bridge will be closed to traffic from 12/02/18 until 09/18. During this time all traffic to Baillieston will be diverted via Hamilton Road onto Mount Vernon Avenue.

The Bus service 310 will be withdrawn during this time period. Alternative bus routes that can be used are the 240 and 255 via Hamilton Road to Glasgow.

Broomhouse Community Council is working the Glasgow City Council, network Rail and McGills to find alternative solutions and we will keep you posted.

Please see the link to Network Rail letter for further detail –

Muirhead Road – Neighbour Notification

We will be discussing this issue at our next meeting on Monday 30th January 19:30 at the Broomhouse Hall. All are welcome.

Broomhouse, we need your help

With the work being undertaken to the railway bridge and subsequent withdrawal of the 310 bus service during the road closures from 12/02/18 for 7 months, the community council have been working with local councillors to find a solution, as the withdrawal of the bus is something we feel is unacceptable.

To help us highlight the need for the bus service to continue in some capacity during the 7 month road closure can we ask local residents to email us or post on our facebook details of when and why you use the bus service, and the impact its removal would have. This will then help us with our continued discussions with Glasgow City Council, Network Rail and McGills.

The next Community Council is on Monday 29th January at 19:30 in the Broomhouse Hall. All are welcome to attend, we have also asked Glasgow City Council, Network Rail and McGills to attend.

Thank you,
BCC

Eastbound Barrier Works – M8 Kingston Bridge South Approach

As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road maintenance programme, Scotland TranServ is supervising essential upgrading work to the cope and parapets on the M8 Kingston Bridge South Approaches.

Following successful completion of the westbound phase prior to Christmas, Raynesway Construction Ltd will now replace the edge coping, vehicle barriers and expansion joints on the East bound carriageway on the south approach structure. Traffic management will be implemented on the M8 eastbound carriageway from Sunday the 07th January 2018 with planned overall completion expected in March 2018.

In order to work as safely and efficiently as possible, it will be necessary to narrow the lanes on the bridge through the work zone with a reduced speed limit of 40mph.

To implement the narrow lanes and erect a temporary vehicle barrier, overnight closures of the east bound carriageway will be implemented on Sunday 7th to Wednesday 10th January. Traffic will be diverted onto local roads before joining the M8 eastbound carriageway beyond the works area.

We would advise motorists to always check latest roads information on trafficscotland.org or by following @trafficscotland on Twitter.
