Maryhill & Springburn MSP Patricia Ferguson has been working hard along with local Councillor Martin Rhodes to ensure action is taken to resolve flooding issues at Sandbank Street and Balmore Road.
Commenting on the current situation the Labour MSP said:
“In recent months there have been a number of occasions when flooding on Sandbank St has caused problems for commuters driving and walking into and out of Summerston.
“The problem has been exacerbated by the on-going problems on Balmore Road where flooding has been happening for some time.
“A planned scheme to resolve the drainage problems on Balmore Road has been programmed over a twelve week period of time and will require some road closures and lane restrictions over this time.
“On completion of the work at Balmore Road the work to improve the drainage system at Sandbank St will begin. This will be carried out over a five day period and traffic management will include a reduction to one lane controlled by traffic lights and a road closure to enable a connection to the Scottish Water sewerage system.
“The work is being phased in this way to ensure that there is ore than one access and egress route to, and from, Summerston throughout the duration of the work.
“Thanks to Cllr Martin Rhodes for all his efforts to make sure the work at Sandbank St went ahead.”
