TRAFFIC restrictions in Clydebank caused by a collapsed sewer are to end tomorrow.

Scottish Water said the closed stretch of the west-bound carriageway of Great Western Road near the Drumry roundabout would reopen Wednesday, a month after damage to the 84-year-old pipe.

It collapsed under the central reservation, causing a tree to fall into the void on August 13.

That led to sub-soil and debris washing downstream and choking a sewer connection 17 metres below it.

Scottish Water had to excavate 4m deep to repair the smaller sewer and enabled them to access the 17m bigger sewer. They used a jetting tanker with vacuum suction and a CCTV camera to clear the blockage.

The utility firm said in a statement: "We apologise for any inconvenience this essential work has caused for road users and thank them once again for their patience and understanding.

"Plans are now under way to develop a permanent solution and determine what future investment is required."
