When are we doing it
The programme for the water main replacement works has now been scheduled to start from North Lodge to Panmure Cottages. The work will then move on a rolling programme from Inverarity to Whigstreet, where the works will then finish at Monikie (section 2 first and then section 1). The programme of work is expected to be complete within approx. 25 weeks.

Traffic management will be in place during all works, including traffic lights and speed restrictions.
The road closure at Craigton Farm Road will still go ahead from September to October as advised.
What happens next
We may need to turn off the water supply. If we do, we will send customers further information at least 48 hours in advance, detailing the dates and times that your supply will be affected and what to do. During the works local residents may experience a change in water pressure and/or discoloured water. If this happens don’t be alarmed, turn on the cold water tap in your kitchen, let the water flow slowly until it runs clear.
There will be some roadworks, with local diversions in place, the use of temporary traffic lights and speed restrictions (see details below).
Local access will be maintained wherever possible and access for emergency vehicles will always be maintained. Pedestrian access will not be affected.
