SGN Gas Network Upgrade – Helensburgh Drive, Glasgow
The following message has been circulated on behalf of SGN
As you may be aware, SGN manages the network that distributes natural and green gas to 5.9 million homes and businesses across Scotland and the south of England. We also provide the gas emergency service in these areas.
I’m writing to let you know we will shortly be starting our project to upgrade the gas network in Helensburgh Drive, Glasgow. This essential work involves the replacement of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.
Following discussions with Glasgow City Council our project will start on 3 February 2020 and last approximately eight weeks. We’ll be carrying out the work over two phases to help minimise disruption. Each phase is described below:
Phase one – approximately four weeks
On Monday 3 February, we’ll be working in the following areas:
• Munro Road
• Chamberlain Road
• Helensburgh Drive
During this phase we’ll be carrying out all works on the footpaths.
Phase two – approximately four weeks From Monday 2 March, we’ll be working in the following areas:
• Seggielea Road
• Jordanhill Drive
• Wilmont Road
During this phase we’ll be carrying out all works on the footpaths. Carriageways will remain clear with give and take in operation if required.
We’ll be posting regular updates on our website
and using social media and traffic bulletins to keep residents and motorists informed. Please feel free to share this information with your stakeholders and anyone else who may be impacted by our work.
If you have any other enquiries about this project, please call project manager Bryan Robertson on 0141 418 4000 during office hours (8am to 4.30pm) or Customer Service on 0800 912 1700 outside these times.
News as of Autumn 2019
A number of issues have been progressed by JCC during 2019 and these can be summarised as follows. Details of the issues will be found in the monthly minutes.
1. Scotstoun Stadium Capacity (although outside the JCC boundary).
2. Local Traffic Issues for Pedestrians, Cyclists, and car drivers.
3. Jordanhill Community Focus (possible Community Centre)
4. Local Bus Transport Changes and Objections
5. Jordanhill Park Cala Development
6. Obligatory Planning Reviews
JCC ask residents to comment on every issue that comes to mind and we will do our best to represent these into GCC. We can do this very effectively and have direct access to our local City Councillors and City Officials that residents are not easily able to do.
Victoria Park Area Partnership
Jordanhill district is located in the Victoria Park electoral ward along with Whiteinch and Thornwood. The Area Partnership is a Glasgow City Council (GCC) forum where the Community Councils and local City Councillors within each Ward come together every two month or so to discuss local issues and to hear presentations from the Police, Fire Brigade and relevant GCC department officials. One important role the Area Partnership has is to award grants to local groups to help fund schemes for local residents.

Message from Police Scotland
Jordanhill area still appears to be targeted by house breakers and
other suspicious persons. We are asked by the local Police to be
vigilant and to please report any suspicious events or persons using
101, or 999 telephone numbers. Even if it turns out subsequently to have
been a false alarm. Our area is still the target for vandals and
anti-social behaviour, particularly the Jordanhill Campus area. There
should be extra Police activity in evidence over the coming weeks.
As some of you
will know to your cost, there has been a spate of thefts from houses and
garages in Jordanhill. Our Police Scotland contacts emphasise the need
for vigilance in noting suspicious events and particularly for ensuring
security of your premises. Thefts from garages are a particular issue.
We are warned also about fraud involving bogus workers who quote for
work to be done, accept payment then disappear. In some cases evidently
‘white vans’ have been implicated. Be on your guard! Jordanhill receives
regular police patrols, although they cannot be everywhere all the
time. Police Scotland emphasis the usefulness of 101 calls, despite
scepticism from some residents.
