Alert message sent 16/01/2019 11:40:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland


The information below is being circulated on behalf of SGN

As you may be aware, SGN manages the network that distributes natural and green gas to 5.9 million homes and businesses across Scotland and the south of England. We also provide the gas emergency service in these areas.

I’m writing to let you know we’ll soon be starting the second stage of a wider programme of works to upgrade the gas network in Govan Road area of Glasgow. This essential work involves the replacement of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.

Following discussions with Glasgow City Council, our project will start on Monday 28 January and will last approximately eight weeks.

We’ll be carrying out the work on the public footpaths in Govan Road except for phase two where we will install temporary two-way traffic lights. Pedestrian access will remain open at all times.  

The work will be undertaken by two teams over six phases to help minimise disruption. Each phase is described below.

Phase 1 – approximately 1.5 weeks
From Monday 28 January, we will be working in Govan Road between Linthouse Buildings and outside number 1333 Govan Road.

Phase 2 – approximately 2.5 weeks
From Wednesday 5 February, we will be working in Govan Road between Burghead Place and Linthouse Buildings.
To ensure everyone’s safety, we will install two-way traffic lights in Govan Road which will be manually operated at peak times.

Phase 3 – approximately 4 weeks
From Monday 25th February, we will be working in Govan Road between Holmfauld Road and Cressy Street.

Phase 4 – approximately 2 weeks
From Monday 28 January, we will be working between 1018 Govan Road and 978 Govan Road.

Phase 5 – approximately 2.5 weeks
From Monday 11th February, we will be working between 978 Govan Road and 830 Govan Road.

Phase 6 – approximately 3.5 weeks
From Thursday 28 February, we’ll be working between 830 Govan Road and 780 Govan Road.

We’ll be posting regular updates on our website https://www.sgn.co.uk/Roadworks/Scotland-projects/ and using social media and traffic bulletins to keep residents and motorists informed.

Please feel free to share this information with anyone else who may be impacted by our work.
