CLYDEBANK cops have warned drivers to avoid the A82 near Mountblow due to flooding caused by heavy rain.

One lane of the A82 at the Auchentoshan Distillery has been closed and police have asked commuters to avoid the area if they can.

It adds to an already turbulent morning for the area due to the overnight heavy rain with all trains on the local rail network cancelled due to flooding at the Bowling and Craigendoran stations and locals reporting road chaos on social media.

Livingstone Street in central Clydebank is reportedly affected, as is access to Old Kilpatrick from the A82.

One resident wrote on a local Facebook group: "Roads are flooded at cut off to Erskine Bridge coming from Clydebank.

"Police are diverting traffic as you come from Dumbarton at cemetery road down to one lane.

"Station road is flooded. Can’t get up onto A82 from Old Kilpatrick and can’t get down from A82 into Old Kilpatrick either."

Another added: "Livingston Street flooded from Go Outdoors to Shirwell.

"Road shut off and a few cars stuck. Had to turn around and park at the shops and walk into Linnvale.

"Waters quite high, like a drowned rat. Thank u very much to the person heading back into Linnvale who stopped to offer me a lift, was much appreciated."

Scotrail say they have to wait until the water clears at stations before they can begin running trains again and that all tickets for travel today will be valid for tomorrow due to the service disruption.
