Phases 1 and 2 of the White Cart Water Flood Prevention Scheme were completed by late 2011 as part of Glasgow City Council's strategy, working with other key stakeholders, to reduce flood risk to residents and businesses in the south side of Glasgow.
In 2017, Glasgow City Council secured funding to enable the completion of the third and final phase of the scheme. This phase involves the construction of 9 sections of flood defence - a combination of flood defence walls and embankments which will provide direct flood defence along sections of both the White Cart Water and Auldhouse Burn.
Through 2017 the project team has been finalising the design, and undertaking surveys etc. They also held a public exhibition in late October to provide information on the proposed works. RJ McLeod has recently been appointed as the contractor to undertake the works, with a view to a site start in the spring of 2018.
