Dundee Water Mains Improvement

Project Overview

Scottish Water is investing £5m in upgrading Dundee’s water infrastructure. We are investing to ensure our customers continue to receive the highest quality drinking water possible. Water mains can vary in age and that’s why the upgrading, and in some cases replacement, of these essential supply pipes is vital to ensure we achieve maximum water quality and security of supply for our customers.

What does the work entail?
Pipe refurbishment work includes replacement, re-lining the internal surface of the mains or cleaning them by swabbing and flushing. This improves the water quality from the existing water mains pipes by cleaning any deposits that have built up over time.

Update May 2017

Work will begin on the 23rd May in Forfar Road and it will last for approximately six weeks. A southbound lane closure will be required for the duration.

Forfar Road will be closed southbound between the junction of Clepington Road and Pitkerro Road with a diversion in place via Clepington Road and Pitkerro Road.

Our current works on the Clepington Road involving an eastbound lane closure has experienced difficulties due to the age and condition of the existing water main. As a result of the the current land closure will be extended for an additional week (week commencing 15th May). The westbound closure which was due to follow this is under review and we will update as soon as we have further information.

We will continue to update this page as work progresses.

Please note that due to the nature of these works, all dates are subject to change.
