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 3rd February 2017

  • The northbound lane closure on Strathmartine Road between Strathmore Avenue and Hill Street will be removed in time for rush hour on the morning of Monday 6th February and the road fully reopened.
  • There will be upgrade works (but not road closure) on the following streets:
    • Kinghorne Road
    • Law Road 
    • Annfield Street

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.
