CONCERNS have been raised about the safety of a Drumchapel street after a man fell through a nearby sinkhole.

The crater was discovered in a garden on Tallant Road when a local worker sank into it.

Now, fears have turned to the impact it could have on a busy bus route if it gets any bigger.

The worker, who doesn’t wish to be named, told the Clydebank Post: “The ground fell through and I was pretty deep in the ground and still sinking.

“The housing was called.

“It would be good to know they are doing something about it and getting professionals in to look at it. This is a main bus route.”

The home is looked after by Pineview Housing Association who told the Post the sinkhole is a concern but one they are on top of.

A spokesperson said: “Pineview Housing Association and partner organisations are currently carrying out investigations and testing into the cause of the hole so that the most appropriate repair can be carried out as quickly as possible.

“In the meantime, the hole has been covered over and fenced off.

“We will do all we can to keep our residents updated and re-assured.”

In March 2020, diversions caused traffic chaos on Linkwood Drive, Kinfauns Drive and Hecla Avenue due to a sinkhole outside the West Centre.

And there is further worry about more sinkholes after the area was battered by heavy rainfall over the last few weeks.
