Fern­hill Road to close for fort­night

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Mo­torists head­ing through Fern­hill are be­ing warned of a road clo­sure in the com­ing weeks.

South La­nark­shire Coun­cil have con­firmed a sec­tion of Fern­hill Road will be shut from June 27 un­til July 17.

The clo­sure, be­tween the junc­tions with Neil­vaig Drive and Gal­loway Drive, is re­lated to the on­go­ing build­ing of new houses in the scheme.

Driv­ers are be­ing urged to use Burn­side Road, Blair­beth Road and Mill Street as a di­ver­sion.

A tem­po­rary wait­ing and load­ing re­stric­tion will also be in place on the north side of Gal­loway Drive be­tween the same dates.

A spokesper­son for South La­nark­shire Coun­cil said: “The clo­sure is needed for the in­stal­la­tion of util­i­ties to the site and the wait­ing and load­ing re­stric­tions are needed to help buses ne­go­ti­ate their al­ter­na­tive route.”

Tem­po­rary traf­fic lights are al­ready in op­er­a­tion at the junc­tion of Burn­side Road and Cathkin by­pass while work con­tin­ues on the Cathkin Re­lief Road.
