The first images of a 36-inch pipe which burst, leaving around 250,000 people without water for hours, have been released.
Scottish Water customers in around 100,000 properties across Glasgow and East Dunbartonshire were affected by a burst pipeline in Milngavie on Tuesday.
The incident occurred on Auchenhowie Road, where the 36-inch main is located, and closures around the area remain in place.
Major excavation works are now under way to repair the major water main, leaving Glasgow Road and Auchenhowie Road closed for around two weeks.
The incident affected gig goers at Lewis Capaldi’s OVO Hydro concert on Tuesday evening, with the venue forced to close toilets due to water shortages.
Georgina Reid, Scottish Water’s corporate affairs manager for the west, said: “Our first priority was making the location safe, and restoring water supplies to the 100,000 properties affected across several areas of Glasgow.
“This is a very busy commuter route, and the damage has been substantial.
“Our teams will be working through the night tonight and our priority now is to get the repair completed and the roads reopened as soon as possible.
“Drivers should expect some delays, especially at peak times and follow the diversions in place.
“Some local residents may experience some increased noise this evening and overnight and we sincerely apologise for the inconvenience and disruption this may cause.”
Customers have been warned that, despite supplies being restored, some may experience discolorations in their water.
Scottish Water advises that this is normal, and people should run their cold water kitchen tap at reduced pressure until it runs clear.
If the tap runs white water, this is air in the water supply following the interruption and will settle within 24 to 48 hours.
