A £700,000 refurbishment of a railway bridge is set to take place in a new Network Rail project.
The bridge is on Bell Street in the east end of Glasgow and the project will see the steelwork repairs on the bridge as well as grit-blasting and repainting.
From the 18th of October until the beginning of April next year, the road will be closed and a diversion will be in place via Little Dovehill, Gallowgate, High Street.
Network Rail has organised a public information event which offers members of the public a chance to ask questions about the project.

Stephen Orr, Scheme Project Manager at Network Rail, said: “Our work at Bell Street will not only extend the lifespan of the bridge, but will help us to continue to run a safe and reliable railway through Glasgow.
“In order to complete this project as quickly and as safely as possible, we need to close the road under the bridge to traffic. Having the road closure in place means we can carry out these works with minimal overall disruption and inconvenience to the community.
“We are grateful to the community for their patience while we carry out these vital improvement works.”
