DRIVERS are set to face disruption as a busy road in Bridge of Weir will be hit with traffic management.

Scottish Water will be installing two-way traffic lights for four days on Main Street from Tuesday, January 15 until Friday, January 19 to tie in and reinstate the roadway where it meets Mill Brae.

It comes as part of the water company's million-pound project to help alleviate sewer flooring in the area.

Georgina Reid, Scottish Water's corporate affairs manager in the west said: “This is the end of the road as far as traffic management is concerned for this project.

“Last year’s full road closure was an inconvenience we had not anticipated so I am delighted no further restrictions will be required on Main Street once this next phase of works is complete.

“The project will deliver a significant long-term benefit to the village and the local community, and we would once again like to thank residents and road users for their patience and understanding."

According to the water firm, there had been an issue with water waste surcharging from a manhole in the village during periods of heavy rainfall for a number of years.

The project has seen the installation of a larger sewer in Mill Brae and a section on Main Street opposite the Amaretto restaurant.

Originally, the work on Main Street was to be carried out under a single-lane closure on the north side of the road.

However, a significant number of uncharted services were discovered in the location planned to lay the new pipework - which was not present during earlier site investigations.

Due to this, a full road closure was required to safely replace the existing sewer with a new, larger pipe.

Georgina added: “We worked as quickly as possible under challenging conditions to complete this particularly disruptive phase of the project.

“I would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work, dedication and determination.”
