Bridge in Glasgow’s southside to be demolished

Network Rail

THE bridge on Glasgow’s Nithsdale Road is to be demolished as part of Network Rail’s Barrhead to Glasgow electrification project.

‘Significant round the clock’ activity is to take place at the site this weekend, which will include the use of a crane and lorries to remove bridge materials.

The bridge will be raised and re-decked to create the room required to install overhead powerlines beneath the structure.

Rachael Melody, senior sponsor, said, “This work is an essential part of the electrification programme that will create a more reliable and greener railway for our passengers and lineside neighbours. The weekend closures of this rail line will allow us to complete the works safely and efficiently, and while disruption is expected, we fully appreciate the patience and support of the community during this time.”
