Strathpeffer sewer upgrade completed on schedule

A £500,000 project to renew a section of the main sewer in central Strathpeffer has now been completed by Scottish Water, ensuring the network can continue to serve customers and protect the local environment for years to come.

The project got underway in late January and initially required the closure of a section of the A834 for several weeks, with measures in place to ensure that school and public transport services could continue to operate.

A further two-day closure took place over the Easter holiday period to enable final reinstatement of the road to take place, with a local diversion being possible for cars and light vehicles.

Following the initial road closure, the majority of the work was completed using a specialised relining technique to renew the existing sewer, minimising the requirement for widespread excavation and further disruption in the village.

The work was carried on Scottish Water's behalf by alliance partners amey-Black & Veatch (aBV).
