A road closed for repair after a gas pipe in Grangemouth was fractured is expected to re-open this weekend.

Part of the Forth Clyde Way off Glensburgh Road 
has been shut since December 7 following the incident involving a medium-pressure gas pipe the previous Saturday.

Around 20 homes were evacuated for most of the day and the off ramp at Junction 6 of the M9 was closed for 
several hours.

A specialist team of gas engineers has continued to work on the repair, closing 150 metres of Forth Clyde Way.

A free shuttle bus has been running from Grangemouth Old Town to Grangemouth Charing Cross, and diversions have been in place.

A spokesperson for Scotia Gas Network said: “We expect the work to be completed later in the day on 

“After that, resurfacing works will have to be carried out on the road, but the road should be re-opened over the weekend.”
