Road Closure between East Kilbride & Eaglesham Update

28 November 2017 Update

Please see the following correspondence from Johan Gillespie of SP Energy Networks - 

I have received notification from our contractors advising a second period of road closure is required to complete our works on Eaglesham Road in order to maintain public and working safety. The second closure is due to run from Monday 8th January 2018 for 5 weeks between Peel Road and Ocein Drive roundabouts.

Our contractors worked on the section on Eaglesham Rd (between Greenhills Rd and Peel Rd) under 2 way lights and they felt it was not as safe as it could have been.  Their area of work was restricted by the running traffic lane and also the constant flow of traffic / vibration putting their track at risk of collapse – to ensure the safety of the workers, work was completed at a slower pace than previously planned. 

The original plan was to keep the road closures to a minimum, but now that the job is up and running they feel this closure is a necessity to keep the workforce and community safe, it will also allow the works to be completed efficiently as possible preventing further disruption.
