Construction starts on new road

First phase of Gartcosh Glenboig link road

Work has started at Auldyards Road in the first stage of the new Gartcosh to Glenboig link road.

The work is being carried out by JH Civil Engineering Ltd on our behalf, and involves upgrading the existing road and street lighting, together with a new footway/cycleway, drainage and kerbing.

It is part of the wider £6.6million project being delivered through the Glasgow City Region City Deal to construct a new road and two roundabouts between Gartcosh and Glenboig, helping to attract new housing to the area and investment at Gartcosh Business Park.

Access to and from Auldyards Road will be maintained throughout the 16-week programme of work, with traffic management in place. Temporary parking restrictions are in place to allow the work to be carried out and drivers are asked to follow all traffic signs and restrictions. 

"The Gartcosh to Glenboig link road project is now progressing at pace, with construction work starting on site and approval for the second phase expected from the Glasgow City Region City Deal Cabinet in December," said Councillor Allan Graham, Convener of the Regeneration and Infrastructure Committee.

"The link road is key to opening up opportunities for around 3,000 new homes over the next 20 years and improved transport links to the business park and surrounding area, which in turn will deliver millions of pounds of business investment."

As part of the overall link road project, Gartcosh Local Nature Reserve will be extended by approximately 2.15 hectares.

Work started on site on Monday 28 November.
