Scottish Water will carry out works to stop sewage flooding in the grass area at the East Renfrewshire town’s Braidholm Road.

Now, the company has confirmed that the full closure of a short section of the road, from Merryton Avenue to Merrylee Park Avenue, will come into effect on Monday, August 1st.
