From the 30th of October to the 7th of December, illustrator Mitch Miller will be resident in Market Gallery on Duke Street. His task will be to create a large room-length ‘dialectogram’ of the stretch of Dennistoun’s main high street that lies between Bellgrove and Duke Street railway stations. Aided by a team of volunteers who will gather information and assist his research, he will work continuously on the drawing in an open studio format, where members of the public will be encouraged to drop by, share stories and if they so wish, contribute their own knowledge and experiences to the dialectogram.
Scottish Water are working to improve the security of supply to thousands of customers in parts of the East End and the south of Glasgow by upgrading stretches of water mains which have been affected by bursts in the past. They are replacing old water mains pipes with new plastic pipes to reduce the chance of pipes bursting in the future.
The work (carried out for Scottish Water by contractors Farrans) is due to start week commencing 29th October 2012 12th November, last for approximately 12 weeks, and will be carried out in Duke Street, Bellgrove Street and the Gallowgate. Traffic management will be in operation during this work.
