Dundee mains upgrade moves on to Old Glamis Road

23 January 2018

Scottish Water’s multi-million pound investment in the water network across Dundee continues this month with work starting in Old Glamis Road in the coming weeks.

The project, being carried out on Scottish Water’s behalf by alliance partner Caledonia Water Alliance, is a £5m upgrade of water mains across the city.

The next stage will see work begin on Monday 29 January, with a southbound lane closure in place on Old Glamis Road from the junction of Kelvin Street to the junction of Clepington Road.

The lane closure is expected to be in place for approximately three weeks.

Local access will be maintained throughout the work, though there may be some parking restrictions in place.

Scottish Water and CWA do all they can to minimise disruption during any project and this lane closure is required as excavations will be required for this part of the work.

All traffic management is agreed in advance with the local council.

Clive Duncan from Scottish Water said:

“This essential project has been ongoing for the last 18 months in Dundee and we have made efforts throughout that time to make sure local customers are kept fully informed of the work we are doing in their area. 

“This section on Old Glamis Road will see a lane closure and we want to make sure residents and commuters are aware of this well in advance. The lining work taking place here will help ensure customers can continue to enjoy clear, fresh drinking water long into the future.

“We would again like to thank customers for their patience and understanding as this work is carried out.”
