Scottish Water is reminding road users in parts of the southside of road traffic management as they progress with preparatory work for the construction of the Shieldhall Tunnel.

Contractors working for Scottish Water will be carrying out ground consolidation work in the Titwood Road area of Crossmyloof which will require road traffic management from January 18.

To enable the work to progress, it will be necessary to close a stretch of Dolphin Road from Killiegrew Street/Meldrum Gardens to Titwood Road and the slip road between Titwood Road and Shawmoss Road from Monday, January 18 until Sunday May, 29.

A contraflow traffic management system will operate between Minard Road and Shawmoss Road, which will reduce traffic to one lane in each direction with three-way temporary traffic lights installed at the junctions of Titwood Road/Darnley Road/Minard Road and Titwood Road/Shawmoss Road.

Road users are advised to allow extra time for their journeys during the duration of the works.

Mark Maclaren, Scottish Water’s community manager for the project, said: “Our Shieldhall Tunnel preparatory work is progressing and we require this road traffic management to enable is to continue.

“We will do everything we can to minimise any inconvenience to road users and can assure them that these works are vital to the area.”
