See the response in full below.

SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT WRITTEN ANSWER 9 January 2023 Index Heading: Economy

Paul Sweeney (Glasgow) (Scottish Labour Party): To ask the Scottish Government what steps Scottish Water is taking to address any dilapidated structural condition of the category B listed Partick Sewage Pumping Station at 35 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow. S6W-13054 Michael Matheson: Scottish Water has completed some works to the front facia elevation of the building and the dome structure as well as some minor roof repairs and replacement of downpipe and guttering. There have also been repairs made to replace vandalised windows. Scottish Water is now progressing work to replace the railings in line with the pumping station’s listed status and this is planned for early 2023 once the required traffic management on Argyle Street/Dumbarton Road is agreed with Glasgow City Council Roads Department.

In addition to this, Scottish Water is in the early design stages for improvements to the roof. This work is likely to be carried out towards the middle to end of 2024 following listed building consent being secured from the relevant authorities. Scottish Water is also planning some maintenance work on equipment integral to the operation and effective running of the pumping station.
