Di­ver­sion route now in place for clo­sure

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Net­work Rail have re­leased de­tails of the di­ver­sion route that will be in place when a sec­tion of Cam­bus­lang Road closes to traf­fic next month.

Mo­torists are brac­ing them­selves for the 14-week clo­sure of the vi­tal route while work takes place on the rail­way bridge.

Traf­fic will in­stead be di­rected down Ruther­glen Main Street, Cale­do­nia Av­enue, King Street and Farmeloan Road. Work on the bridge, near the M74 exit, in­cludes strength­en­ing the main gird­ers and con­crete bridge deck, blast clean­ing and re­pair­ing the met­al­work, ap­ply­ing cor­ro­sion pro­tec­tion to steel­work, paint­ing the en­tire bridge, re­pair­ing ma­sonry and clear­ing veg­e­ta­tion.

Billy McKay, Net­work Rail pro­gramme man­ager, said: “We know the A724 is an im­por­tant ac­cess point to the M74 as well as a route for lo­cal traf­fic and we do not take the de­ci­sion to re­quest its clo­sure lightly. We un­der­stand the im­pact this po­ten­tially will have for road users and com­mu­ni­ties ad­ja­cent to the pro­posed di­ver­sion route.”

Bridge works Will be tak­ing place for 14 weeks here
