What We Are Doing 

A £150,000 investment project is set to get under way in Largs, North Ayrshire.

On Thursday 19th August, work begins to upgrade Scottish Water’s waste water pumping station in May Street. 

A number of improvements will be made, including the controls for the pumps – which are currently underground – being moved above ground level. 

A control kiosk (measuring 2.8m x 0.76m x 1.7m high) and a short footpath will be constructed on the grassy area near to the junction of May Street and Warrenpark Road. 

No traffic management will be required, however, a site compound and cabins will in place for the duration of the work. The work is being delivered on behalf of Scottish Water by WGM Engineering Ltd and it is expected to take around three months for completion. 

This land is owned by Scottish Water and we have consulted with North Ayrshire Council.


Why We Are Doing It 

These upgrades will make it much easier for operatives to carry out their activities by making this asset much more accessible. The work will also help protect the local environment, something which is of vital importance to  Scottish Water. 

Local residents are thanked in advance for their patience and understanding while these essential works are carried out. 

Scottish Water personnel and contractors will adhere to Scottish Government Covid-19 guidance for the construction industry and the public. Measures will be in place to ensure safe working and allow for safe distancing by our workforce. This also ensures the safety of people in the communities and locations where we are working.
