A vital project to refurbish the rail bridge over Crowhill Road in Bishopbriggs has started today (January 11).
Network Rail is investing £550,000 on a programme of cleaning, steelwork repairs, masonry work and repainting designed to protect and extend the lifespan of the bridge for up to 25 years.
To enable the safe and efficient delivery of the project, the road passing underneath the bridge will need to close from Monday, January 11, until April 2.
Allison Flanagan, Network Rail programme manager, said: “We appreciate the patience of residents while we carry out these vital works.
“Delivering projects of this type, in a constrained location, presents a logistical challenge, but we have planned the job carefully and will complete it with the minimum possible inconvenience to the local community.
“We understand that working close to properties overnight is far from ideal and we will do everything we can to minimise the noise and complete the project as quickly as possible.”
If you have any questions about this work you can contact Network Rail’s 24 hour national helpline on 03457 11 41 41. For the latest information and progress updates follow on twitter @NetworkRailScot or visit https://scotlandsrailway.com/projects/crowhill-road.
