Police say a suspicious object may have been left in the Braehead Road area of the city.
They are warning the public not to “approach any suspicious looking objects but to contact police immediately.”
“Police received a report that something may have been left in the area however after a search nothing untoward has been found,” a PSNI spokeswoman said.
It is the second such report in recent weeks.
In early November police urged caution after reports of a suspicious object being left in the Whitehouse Road area of the city.
