This giant crater left in one of the city's busiest thoroughfares should have been repaired more than a week ago.
But the massive hole is still causing problems for traffic and pedestrians - despite promises from utility bosses they will fix it.
A burst water main on Wednesday, August 10 meant Scottish Water workers had to dig up part of the road outside the former Odeon Cinema in Renfield Street.
Scottish Water bosses promised Glasgow City Council the road would be repaired by August 15.
But, as the hole widened and pipework below Renfield Street became more exposed, water chiefs changed the repair date to August 19.
They then told the council the work would be completed by tomorrow.
Our photos show that this is not the case - and that the crater is still causing hassle for pedestrians who have to skirt round the damaged road and pavement.
Now, after being contacted by the Evening Times, bosses have pledged the road work will be completed over the weekend.
A spokesman for Scottish Water said: "We will work to complete the reinstatement in Renfield Street as soon as possible and anticipate this will be done this weekend.
"The work has been delayed by operational issues, including a separate burst pipe nearby and a damaged a valve. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to road users."
Earlier this week we highlighted the fact that utility firms are botching almost half of all repair jobs in Glasgow.
Roadworks commissioner John Gooday, had stated he wanted to see improvements and if that didn't happen he would see firms were fined up to £50,000.
But this latest utility firm failure has been allowed to go unchecked for more than two weeks.
The crater in Renfield Street, a route which is used by 230 buses an hour, has gradually widened during the past two weeks.
Plastic fencing placed round the crater to protect pedestrians fell into the hole.
There is now metal fencing surrounding the area but the hole is still posing a problem for the hundreds of commuters using the street each hour.
And it's not the first time Scottish Water has caused problems in Renfield Street.
Last year the Evening Times told how a burst water main caused so much damage it left buses in danger of toppling over.
They found that a leaking water main had weakened the surface of the road which was buckling under the weight of traffic.
Council chiefs accused Scottish Water of simply digging a hole and walking away from the problem.
They spoke at the time of their frustration as Glasgow City Council is not allowed to fix damage caused by utility firms and cannot force the companies to do so.
The Evening Times told last week about a giant hole created in St Vincent Place after a gas leak.
Scotia Gas Networks should have fixed the problem by August 4 but repairs were not carried out until August 19 - after council bosses complained to the gas company.
The Renfield Street damage comes after the Evening Times reported on Tuesday that utility firms are botching almost half of all repair jobs in the city's streets. This means the roads are more prone to potholes and has made Glasgow the worse city in Scotland for acceptable road repair jobs.
Firms, including BT, Scottish Water, Scottish Gas, ScottishPower, Cable and Wireless, Telewest and NTL dig up roads in Glasgow 20,000 times a year.
The failure rate means that after around 8000 of the repairs the road is left in a poor standard.
Telecom giant BT was the worst offender in the city with two thirds of jobs deemed sub-standard.
In Glasgow, Scottish Water failed 52% of inspections, Virgin, including NTL and Telewest failed 50%, Cable and Wireless failed 50% and ScottishPower failed in 27%.
But Scottish Gas Networks was the best performer, failing in just 17% of inspections.
MRS KATHIE LENNOX, 73, from Eaglesham:
"I think the utilities companies should be fined when they don't get on with it.
"I think they are supposed to be filled in within two weeks, but they seem to stay a state for ages."
BETH GRAY, 17, a student at Glasgow Central College, from Eaglesham:
"I think they leave it too long before they fix them.
"The potholes can get really bad if they don't do anything.
"They should force them to fix it before it gets bad."
DAVID BERTRAM, 35, unemployed, from Pollokshields:
"I think they should get fined or something if they don't fill them on time."
GILLIAN CAMPBELL, 28, marketing executive from Cambuslang:
"I think something should be done about it. It's dangerous and an eyesore."
DAVID WILSON, lawyer, 44, who specializes in potholes:
"The danger of having something like that ( see picture on left) is that the barriers are going to disappear. It only takes one Saturday night and students will go home with them.
"People now have serious accidents. I see two or three people a day who have broken a limb as a result of utilities companies.
"The council under the New Roads and Street Works Act has the authority to do something, and they should be using their authority."
