Work to start on project to tackle flooding in Buckie

The Scottish Water project will focus on improving the sewer network between Sutherland Crescent and St Peter's Terrace to increase the capacity of the pipe and minimise the risk of overflow during peak storm conditions.

The first phase will see St Peter's Terrace closed from May 28 until the end of June to allow the new larger diameter sewer pipe to be laid from St Peter's Primary School up to the end of the road. Running in tandem with this there will be three-way traffic lights on St Peter's Road to allow a water main to be diverted.

A £700,000 project to mitigate historic flooding in Buckie is set to get underway in the town on May 28.
