A 27-inch sinkhole which appeared after a sewer main burst has left a Renfrewshire road closed for the foreseeable future.
Scottish Water confirmed that Campbell Street, in Renfrew, has been closed to the public after the crater formed on the junction of Ferry Road on Tuesday morning.
The authority said the burst main was impossible to repair safely without the closure.
Local diversions have been put in place as Scottish Water move equipment and materials to begin repairing the hole.
A spokesperson for Scottish Water said: “The road is likely to remain closed until we complete the repair but we will do all that we can to minimise any disruption.
“SEPA has been informed and we are keeping them updated on progress. Tankers are in operation to minimise the impact of the burst on the environment.
“We would like to thank road users and residents for their patience and understanding.”
