Motorists face traffic snags for a week on a key stretch of Clarkston Road.

Part of the road is to undergo a major upgrade, which will include improving the main pedestrian crossing.

The resurfacing work begins on Friday, October 14, and is scheduled to finish by Sunday, October 23.

The section affected is from Nethervale Avenue, Stamperland, to Williamwood Drive, Netherlee, and the work will be completed in four phases.

During each phase the side road junctions will be closed and diversions will be applied.

Clarkston Road will remain open throughout, with temporary traffic lights in operation.

To ensure the work is completed as quickly as possible residents are being asked not to park on Clarkston Road.

Infrastructure convener Councillor Tony Buchanan said: “While we recognise that this work will cause some disruption for residents we will minimise this as much as possible.

“All residents affected will be receiving a letter next week to provide more information on the programme of work and their patience during these works is greatly appreciated.

“It is important to upgrade this key section of road and once completed will be a welcome upgrade for all residents who use it on a regular basis.”

The final stage of the upgrades will be the improvement of the pedestrian crossing located near Strathview Park. This will be completed by Friday October 28.
