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 January 2018

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.
