St Andrews Drive Development Update May 2021
St Andrews Drive Development Update
The new build development at St Andrews Drive, #Pollokshields will provide 120 new homes for the area. The proposed timescale for the piling works is approximately 43 working days. The work started on site on Tuesday 18th May which will take us up to mid-July (Glasgow Fair) to complete.
This is dependent on the piling contractor getting a continuous run of work without having to leave site and return at a later date. We have already had to change the sequence of piling works as the Contractor has encountered a number of uncharted live cables running across the location of some of the blocks and we are awaiting Scottish Power team to attend site and disconnect these.
Furthermore, the contractor has discovered a mass of buried concrete located in the old carpark which was adjacent to where Phase 2 “T” block was situated – behind the two detached houses on Shields Road. The contractor is currently ‘breaking this out’ but are finding the concrete to be 4 feet deep in some areas, therefore the period of 43 days may be extended unfortunately.
We apologise sincerely for any inconvenience this work has caused.
