What We Are DoingStarting Tuesday 3rd May, work will begin on Main Street to replace 8.1km of water mains pipes in Patna. This work will then move, on a rolling programme, to other nearby streets and will involve some road closures and traffic management. Anticipated timescales as follows:
Monday 8th August - Carskeoch Drive will be closed from the junction of Blaney Avenue to outside number 65 Carskeoch for around 5 days.
Monday 15th August - Carskeoch Drive will be closed from Whitehall Avenue to the junction of Carnshalloch Avenue, including the Plantation Avenue junction, for approximately 5 days.
Monday 31st October - Stewart Place will be closed from its junction with A713 to the junction with Hillside, opposite number 4 Stewart Place, for around 5 days.
Monday 14th November - Stewart Place will be closed from the junction of A713 to the junction at Hillside, near to no. 20 Stewart Place, for around 10 days.
The new pipes will allow customers to continue to enjoy clear, fresh, drinking water, and will reduce the chance of bursts.
Water network upgrade
The work will involve some road closures between May and November.
Why We Are Doing It
The new pipes will allow customers to continue to enjoy clear, fresh, drinking water.
The investment will also help to reduce the risk of bursts, increasing the resilience of the water mains network for the local community.
