Road works extended

THE closure of Rodger Avenue in Newton Mearns for resurfacing has been extended.

Due to utility works being carried out by Scottish Gas, the expected opening of the avenue for traffic has been delayed by one week.

The closure, which will affect the full length of Rodger Avenue between Barrhead Road and Greenlaw Road, will now commence on Monday, January 16 and will be in operation until Friday, February 3 to allow essential resurfacing work to be carried out.

All vehicles, except emergency vehicles and those associated with the works, will be prohibited — but pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.

An alternative route is via Barrhead Road, Capelrig Road, Meadowhill, Teawell Road and Greenlaw Road.
