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

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 
Friday,

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