project statys delivery

 

Scottish Water is upgrading nearly a kilometre of a vital strategic sewer main running between Renfrew and the Shieldhall Waste Water Treatment Works in Glasgow.

The section running underneath King's Inch Road will be relined using access pits at key locations while a temporary overland pipeline is used to divert flows.

Work began at the beginning of February 2024 and is expected to take approximately 10 months to complete.

King's Inch Burst

There have been a number of bursts over recent months.

What We Are Doing

We are relining nearly a kilometre of 700mm sewer running from the pumping station at Renfrew to Shieldhall Waste Water Treatment Works in Glasgow.

A temporary overland pipe will be constructed to carry the flows while the existing underground sewer is lined through access pits located at strategic points along the route. 

The work is being delivered by our alliance partner Caledonia Water Alliance (CWA) and their specialist contractors who have a proven track record for delivering work on this scale.

Bursts can cause significant damage

Why We Are Doing It

This section of sewer is prone to bursts because of its age and condition. A number of recent incidents caused disruption to local residents and saw the Paterson Park Association allotments flooded several times in a matter of months.

We have fast-tracked the project to address the vulnerability of the network and to protect the environment and customers

The works will provide improved resilience and drastically reduce the chance of future bursts along the relined section.

Update March 2024

Installation of the temporary overland pipe to handle flows while the existing underground sewer is relined is underway.

Sections are being laid out behind fencing along King's Inch Road between Ferry Road and Crofton Way where the westbound carriageway has been reduced to one lane.

Andrew Avenue and Crofton Way are closed to vehicles for the duration of the project. Pedestrian access has been maintained.

It is anticipated the temporary pipeline will be operational by the end of April 2024 when work on the lining access pits will get underway.
