Ayrshire and East Renfrewshire Water Mains Improvement
First Phase of water mains investment
The £120m investment will connect the water main system in much of Ayrshire with the Greater Glasgow area’s water network and will benefit more than 200,000 customers in Ayrshire and East Renfrewshire.
• The first phase of the project started in May 2016 and comprises the installation of 13 miles of new water main from near Newton Mearns to the Fenwick/Waterside area.
• We have installed a section of the water main under a railway line near Barrhead and are working on the laying of stretches of main on peaty bogland in the Fenwick Moor area.
• Most of the 13 miles route is rural and through private land, although road traffic management, including some road closures, has been and will be required. We will keep customers updated throughout the project.
• Our other alliance partners, amey Black and Veatch (aBV), are continuing to construct a new pumping station out our existing water treatment works near Darnley.
• The project is scheduled for completion in Spring 2017.
