REPAIR work is about to commence on the footbridges at Corbiston Way and Darroch Way, in a Council refurbishment plan, as the Council starts works on July 11th.
The work, which will last for twenty-two weeks, will see vital repairs to footbridges, in the area, which have succumbed to years of natural wear and tear.

Commenting, on the works, Bill Kirkland, Assistant Business Manager, of North Lanarkshire Council said: "Work is about to start to refurbish the footbridges at Corbiston Way, leading to Cumbernauld High and Woodland Way leading to Darroch Way. The condition of concrete, waterproofing and joints on both bridges has deteriorated and requires to be upgraded. In addition, repairs will be carried out on the bridge over Wilderness Brae which was damaged when a vehicle struck the bridge last year.
"During the work, which is expected to take approximately 22 weeks, the off-slip from the A8011 to Braehead Roundabout and the on-slip from Braehead Roundabout to the A8011 will both be closed with traffic diverted via the town centre roundabout, and there will be a single lane traffic flow in each direction. Pedestrians using the footbridges will be diverted over purpose-built adjacent temporary footbridges."
