WORKS to replace gas pipes at two schools and a monastery are taking place in Kirkintilloch.

Roadworks have been in place in Waterside Road since last October, but the end is finally in sight for beleaguered motorists and residents.

Scotland Gas Networks (SGN) is carrying out a £176,000 gas mains upgrade in the area.

Around 66 properties were due to have service pipes replaced.

The lion’s share have now been completed and work is imminent on the remaining 12 homes, St Agatha’s Primary, Gartconner Primary and the Carmelite Monastery.

Work at the primary schools will take place at a weekend.

Iona Way has been closed recently as part of the roadworks. It is due to reopen this Sunday at 6pm.

SGN has confirmed that the whole project is on schedule and due to be completed by the end of March.

Meanwhile, drainage works are currently taking place in Main Street, between Gartferry Road and Solway Place. They are due to be completed this Friday.
