Sewer Network Upgrades set to start at Broxden, Perth19 January 2024
The project involves the installation of over a kilometre of new foul sewer, connecting a pumping station in Tweed Place to the gravity sewer in Glasgow Road. The work is being carried out by Scottish Water’s commercial subsidiary, Scottish Water Horizons and its contractor Mackenzie Construction, working on behalf of Perth & Kinross Council.
Once complete the work will help reduce the risk of flooding in the Lamberkine Drive area; and enable the pumping station and associated infrastructure to be transferred into the long-term ownership and care of Scottish Water.
The first phase of work will begin at the junction of Mailer Way with Glasgow Road, where temporary traffic lights are expected to be in place for around 4 weeks to allow work to take place safely. The project as a whole is expected to continue for around 10 months.
“We recognise that Glasgow Road is a major route into and out of the city, and lights will be manually controlled at peak times to reduce delays as far as we can. We would ask road users to plan their journeys and allow some extra time where possible.”Angus Nisbet
Project Manager Angus Nisbet said: “The work we are carrying out is essential to connect the foul sewer network at Broxden Business Park to the city’s main sewer system in a way that ensures it can serve customers well for years to come, with reduced risk of localised flooding.
“Most of our work, including initially at the junction of Mailer Way and Glasgow Road, will require the use of traffic lights. We recognise that Glasgow Road is a major route into and out of the city, and lights will be manually controlled at peak times to reduce delays as far as we can. We would ask road users to plan their journeys and allow some extra time where possible.
“Our programme has been planned in close consultation with the Council’s roads team, in order to complete work in Glasgow Road as early as possible, ahead of the busier summer period.”
