Shields Road will close for renewal from 28th August 2023 until August 2024

Shields Road on the south side of Glasgow will close to traffic for a year to enable the demolition and rebuilding of the bridge over the railway.

From August, work will see the diversion of a range of utilities that cross the structure followed by demolition of the existing bridge deck and repairs to bridge abutments. Utilities will then be reconnected over the bridge ahead of it fully reopening in summer 2024.

During the 12-month period, Shields Road will close to all vehicles between St Andrew’s Drive and Scotland Street. Pedestrian access (and access for cyclists who dismount) will be maintained throughout via a temporary bridge which will be installed early in the project.
