Project update: December 2016

Work is progressing at Ness Road where we have a road closure in place until March 2017 to enable the excavation of new pipelines along with a new pumping station constructed at Golf Course end of the road which is due for completion January 2017. The road will be open over the Christmas/New Year holidays.

Garson storage chamber has been constructed and associated pipes and manholes completed with new footpaths opened fully. Electrical and mechanical installation will take place in January/February 2017.

The new chamber construction at Graham Place has been constructed and new pipelines should be completed before the Christmas break.

The new chamber and valve chambers at Grays Noust have been constructed and the car park has been resurfaced. Electrical and mechanical installation will take place in January/February 2017.

The new chamber/manholes and associated pipes at Ferry Inn have been completed with the new car park resurfaced. Electrical and mechanical installation will take place in January/February 2017 which will require car park closure for 1 to 2 weeks. Affected parties will be contacted prior to closing the car park

The new chamber, manholes and associated pipes have been completed at West Mainland Mart. The current compound setup will remain in place until the completion of all works.

This page will continue to be updated as works progress.

Key Project Facts:

  • A £10 million Scottish Water project will reduce the risk of pollution to the surrounding
  • recreational waters in Stromness Harbour.
  • This work has been meticulously planned to ensure the solution is harmonious with the character of Stromness, and that disruption to local Orcadians is minimised.
