More than £200,000 is to be spent on a road resurfacing project in Hamilton’s Argyle Crescent.

As a result, the road will be closed between Pollock Avenue and Beattock Wynd from 8am on Monday (July 13) for up to five days.

Access for residents and for emergency vehicles will be maintained.

The work sees a return to a package of carriageway resurfacing schemes, planned as part of the Capital Roads Investment programme 2020-21, as lockdown regulations begin to ease across Scotland.

Councillor John Anderson, Chair of the Community and Enterprise Resources Committee, welcomed a return to programmed work on South Lanarkshire’s road network.

He added: “Covid-19 has changed our lives immeasurably over the last few months, and there are few sectors that haven't been stopped or paused while we worked to protect ourselves from this virus.

Thanks to the choices our communities have made, I am heartened to see a version of a normal life return, and with that more and more of our council projects and services return.

“This resurfacing project is among many necessary works we hope to be able to continue to resume throughout South Lanarkshire in the weeks and months ahead, and I thank residents and motorists in advance for their patience and co-operation.”
