Levels of grit have been put in place in the Waterloo area of Glasgow to help keep some of the streets open when the snow has settled.

Signs have been put up in some parts of the region warning of icy, icy conditions, particularly if you are passing through the Shettleston area of the city centre.

The Met Office forecasts the northern hills to be warmer than average this weekend and this could result in heavier snowfall in the north. The walkways between Shettleston and the Beacon on Westminster Terrace are likely to see some snowfall over the weekend.

Blythwood Park is currently in “severe need of repair” and will be fully fixed over the next couple of months after being overgrown with weeds.

Thornliebank – a popular location for pupils in the Gorbals and Barras area of Glasgow – will be closed over the weekend to deal with “construction works and repairs”. South of the bridge contractors have installed footbridges and car parking spaces.

The city centre cycle lane on the Blythwood estate between Victoria Bridge and Page Mill will be reopened on Sunday. Blythwood will be contracting its own street sweepers.

Grade one pedestrian crossings on Belden Street and Oscar Wilde Place will be opened on Saturday morning. Three new junctions have been identified and works are also set to begin on a footpath bridge at Charlotte Square.

The Haltwhistle Road design review will return to the city council this Saturday after delays that have caused the previously scheduled work to be suspended.

It is hoped the proposals for a total change of road safety will not affect the traffic flow of the area during the two-week consultation.

In recent weeks Argyll House has been closed on the Wigginton Road at the height of weekend and bank holiday traffic so alterations could be made to the roadway.

But Blythwood Road, around the corner, has largely been kept open during this time.

The wall at a key location on Tandor Avenue in Tottenham has now been repaired. Knickers Hill Road will be sealed and the road has been cut off to vehicles until further notice.

The London underground station in Wood Green was closed on 14 September due to severe damage caused by a sinkhole. Work has been ongoing to repair the affected area with last work expected to finish by 16 October.

Over the weekend Argyll House will have further maintenance work to complete.
