Temporary traffic lights are in place as work takes place to install filter lanes on a busy road in Bishopbriggs.

The two weeks of work in Kirkintilloch Road got underway on Monday and drivers have been warned to expect delays.

Grace Irvine, East Dunbartonshire Council’s director of neighbourhood services said: ”We currently are carrying out road works on the A803 at the junctions with Hilton Road and Villafield Drive.

“This will allow two filter lanes to be installed. One will turn right into Hilton Road, while the other will turn right into the supermarket car park.

“The work is being done in the quieter summer holidays and will eventually help alleviate congestion.”
