£10m scheme to improve waste water in Glasgow and Clydebank

Scottish Water is start work on a £10m scheme to improve waste water handling in Glasgow and West Dunbartonshire.

The first project will see £850,000 spent on a new combined sewer overflow in Clydebank's Greenlaw Court.

The work, which is due to start on 19 November, will make sure waste water is screened before it is spilled into the River Clyde during stormy weather.

Other projects covering the town and the Yoker area of Glasgow are due to get under way by the spring of 2015.

Mark Maclaren, Scottish Water's regional communities team manager, said: "Scottish Water's investment in improvements to our infrastructure in the Greenlaw Road area and other parts of Yoker and Clydebank will deliver major environmental benefits for years to come.

"We know that local people and road-users will appreciate that any short-term inconvenience will be far out-weighed by the long-term benefits to the environment these projects will deliver."
