£4.8m investment to tackle flooding in Bearsden and Drumchapel

To commence on October 14, the project involves the upsizing of a local sewer and just over half a mile of pipework being installed to upgrade the existing sewer network and help reduce the risk of flooding for properties currently affected by internal or external flooding.

The work will benefit properties in Conon Avenue, Bearsden and properties in Moraine Avenue, Drumchapel. This project will also help protect the local environment.

The fully integrated flooding solution being constructed on this project has been developed in conjunction with Glasgow City Council and East Dunbartonshire Council. It has come into being through the Metropolitan Glasgow Strategic Drainage Partnership (MGSDP) – a collaborative partnership formed by organisations involved with the operation of the sewerage and drainage network within the metropolitan Glasgow area.

The work is being carried out by Scottish Water’s alliance partner amey Black and Veatch (aBV) and its specialist contractors.
