Water supply cut off in Glasgow south side

Water supplies were cut off to hundreds of properties in the south side of Glasgow overnight following a burst water main in the city centre.

Scottish Water said homes in the G41, G42, G43, G44 and G5 postcode areas may have experienced loss of water supply, low pressure or discoloured water.

The company said supply had been restored to all affected householders.

Traffic restrictions were put in place near Central Station while engineers tackled the incident.

The burst water main was on the corner of Union Street and Gordon Street.

A spokeswoman said: "Scottish Water is continuing to carry out repairs to a burst water main in the city centre at the junction of Gordon and Union Street.

"Thanks to the expertise and quick actions of our engineers to redistribute the network, a much smaller number of customers have been affected than potentially could have been."

The spokeswoman added: "We are advising road users that a road closure is in place along the section of Gordon Street that runs in front of Central Station.

"This closure will remain in place until this vital repair work and reinstatement of the road is complete. Motorists can still access Union Street via Renfield Street and are still able to turn left on to Gordon Street."
