Vi­tal road set to re-open

Rutherglen Reformer - - General Election - Dou­glas Dickie

Cam­bus­lang Road is set to fully open to vehicles next week.

The road has been closed at the rail­way bridge since Fe­bru­ary while vi­tal work was car­ried out.

The clo­sure ini­tially caused traf­fic chaos across Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang, but the sit­u­a­tion has eased slightly in re­cent weeks.

A spokesman for Net­work Rail con­firmed to the Re­former there had been no de­lays to the project and the road was set to re-open as sched­uled on Fri­day, May 26.

Work on the bridge, which is near the M74 exit, has in­cluded 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.

Net­work Rail said to deliver the work safely, the road needed to close to vehicles as it is too nar­row to al­low even sin­gle lane of traf­fic. Pedes­trian ac­cess is still per­mit­ted.
