Dumbarton, Glasgow Road

Start date: 7 May 2019

Approximate duration: 17 weeks

 

Update 6 August 2019:

We're continuing the third and final phase of our work to upgrade the gas network in the Glasgow Road area of Dumbarton.

We have now extended the road closure on Castlegreen Street until Wednesday 28 August when we expect our project to be completed.

We'd like to thank Dumbarton residents for their patience and understanding during our works.

 

Update 19 June 2019:

The second phase of our work to upgrade the gas network in the Glasgow Road area of Dumbarton has finished two weeks ahead of schedule.

West Dunbartonshire Council will continue resurfacing work. Glasgow Road and Greenhead Road are due to reopen on Tuesday 2 July. 

We’ll now continue to the third and final phase of our project to upgrade the local gas network as below:

Phase 3 - approximately eight weeks
Castlegreen Street will remain closed at its junction with Glasgow Road, while we carry out the final phase of work near the fire station. 

 

We’ll shortly be starting a project to upgrade the gas network in your area. This essential work involves the replacement of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.

Recently, we carried out multiple emergency repairs on these mains, which are located on a busy route. We’ve decided, in agreement with West Dunbartonshire Council, that replacing these pipes would result in less disruption overall and give Dumbarton residents and businesses a reliable gas supply for many years to come. 

Our work will start on Tuesday 7 May 2019 and last approximately 17 weeks. Our project will be carried out over three phases to minimise inconvenience.

On Tuesday 7 May, we’ll be working in Castlegreen Street for three weeks. For everyone’s safety, Castlegreen Street and Greenhead Road will be closed at their junctions with Glasgow Road.

From Tuesday 28 May, we’ll be working at Glasgow Road’s junction with Castlegreen Street and Greenhead Road for six weeks. Due to the position of our gas main, we’ll need to temporarily close Glasgow Road both ways. Castlegreen Street and Greenhead Road will also remain closed as in phase one. A signed diversion will be in place via A82, Stirling Road – A82 – A812, Renton Road – A814, Glasgow Road and vice versa.

From Tuesday 9 July, Glasgow Road, Castlegreen Street and Greenhead Road will be reopened. We’ll be working in Castlegreen Street near the fire station for eight weeks. Temporary two-way traffic lights will be in place while we work.

Additional information about our work can be found in our customer leaflet.

 

We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, Dumbarton residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
