Project overview

An initial project to repair a sewer main in Duncraig Street in Inverness has now been competed. However, during this work a further issue with a section of sewer on King Street between the junction of Duncraig Street and Greig Street was identified and additional repair work will need to be completed as soon as possible. 
Work has now moved to this part of the sewer and is expected to last until late summer approximately. To allow teams to work safely this section of King Street will be closed to all vehicles for the project’s duration and a one-way system will remain in operation on Duncraig Street. 

Duncraig Street Inverness

Sewer repair work

The essential work on Duncraig Street and King Street is needed to ensure the sewer system can continue to serve the area effectively and protect the local environment for years to come.

We recognise that, while essential, these works will cause some significant disruption for residents in the area, as well as for families with children attending St Joseph’s Primary, for which we would like to apologise.

We have contacted residents and businesses directly to advise them of the arrangements we’ve agreed with Highland Council regarding parking and bin collections while the project is being carried out. Due to the nature of the work, there will be a degree of construction noise from heavy machinery which we will seek to minimise as far as possible.

We would like to thank residents and road users in the area in advance for their patience while we complete this work, which will ensure the sewer system can continue to serve residents effectively and protect the environment for years to come.

The work is being completed on Scottish Water’s behalf by contractor MacAulay Askernish.
