Road Drain Gully Cleaning

Road Drain Gully
Road Drain Gully

Road gully cleaning is taking place around Dennistoun

Please assist by looking out for notices and cones posted in advance, and refrain from parking on streets at times when this work is scheduled.

Glasgow City Council advises as follows…

The Neighbourhood Gully Programme needs residents to comply with the restrictions so that any parked cars are moved to allow access for the large gully vehicles that clean and empty the roadside gullys.

When this programme is on your street, a Temporary Traffic Restriction Notice (TTRNs) will be highlighted as being in place. This means for the times stated please DO NOT park your vehicle on the street.

If your vehicle obstructs the works it will be moved, and you may receive a Parking Charge Notice (PCN). Also, your vehicle may be uplifted to the NRS Vehicle Pound and a charge will be applied to recover your vehicle.

Full details of this are available via glasgow.gov.uk/gullies.

The scheduled programme of streets and dates is shown below
