Dundee Water Mains Improvement
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 26th April 2017
Work is starting on the next phase of this investment in the Arklay Place and Arklay Terrace, with no road closure for this stretch.
On the 1st May, work will begin on Clepington Road and will take approximately 4 weeks to complete. This work will involve a lane closure east bound for around 2 weeks between Provost Road and Arklay Street, with a diversion along Caird Avenue/Moncur Crescent/Dens Road/Arklay Street.
On completion of this work there will be a west bound for 2 weeks between Arklay Street and Provost Road, with a diversion along Arklay Street/Dens Road/Moncur Crescent/Caird Avenue. Work will then continue on a rolling programme onto another section of works in the Clepington Road area.
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.
