Work is set to begin on strengthening and re-painting two railway bridges in Glasgow.
The £2.3m project by Network Rail will see work to extend the life of the bridges on Queen Mary Avenue and Albert Road, next to Crosshill Station on the south side of Glasgow.
The renovation work on the railway bridges begins on June 26th and will last until November.
The first phase includes concrete breakout work to expose the steel structure and complete repairs.
The work will be carried out through the night every Saturday to Thursday from June 26 until mid-August.
During July and August, work on replacing the parapets and painting works will take place.
Road closures will take place at the bridges from 21:00 on Saturday, August 14 to 07:00 on Monday, August 16, and then again from 21:00 on Saturday, August 21 to 07:00 on Monday, August 23.
Further work will take place from mid-August until November will more details available nearer the time.

Suzanne McKay, scheme project manager at Network Rail, said: “These improvement works are crucial to extending the lifespan of the bridges and enable us to continue to run a safe and reliable railway.
“We understand that working close to properties overnight and temporarily closing roads on two weekends in August will inconvenience the community and we apologise in advance for any disruption our work may cause.”
