DYKE Road in Yoker will remain closed until the end of August.

Since March 18, the road has been closed from Dumbarton Road to its junction with Craggan Drive and was due to re-open on June 28.

Scottish Water said that unforeseen circumstances have led to a delay with the complex engineering work.

It is now anticipated that this section of Dyke Road will remain closed until the end of August.

The organisation would like to thank the local residents and road users for their patience and understanding and reassure them that they remain focused on completing this work as quickly as possible.

The work in Yoker is part of Scottish Water’s £250m investment in the Greater Glasgow area’s waste water network, the biggest in more than a century, which 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.

George Leslie Ltd are carrying out the work which will enable the completion of a storm overflow tunnel from the grounds of the former Blawarthill Hospital to the north banks of the Clyde.
