Project Overview

We are investing £2.5 million on improvement works to the waste water services in Kinfauns Drive, Drumchapel by repairing the sewer network to help protect the environment.

On 9th March 2020, we responded to reports of a burst water main outside the West Centre on Kinfauns Drive.
After isolating the main, we engaged with our delivery partners to initially assess the situation, restore water supplies, and carry out the repair.

Through the initial assessment it became clear that the problems were much more serious than initially anticipated. The main sewer was affected, as well as other assets belonging to multiple parties.

What We Are Doing

On 9th March 2020, we responded to reports of a burst water main outside the West Centre on Kinfauns Drive.
After isolating the main, we engaged with our delivery partners to initially assess the situation, restore water supplies, and carry out the repair.

Through the initial assessment it became clear that the problems were much more serious than initially anticipated. The main sewer was affected, as well as other assets belonging to multiple parties.

Over this summer months repairs to the sewer network will be carried out 7 days a week.  This work will involve a large excavation outside The West Centre and the installation of a tunnel under Kinfauns Drive to replace the existing damaged pipes.

Once this work has been completed, the road will be excavated to a new depth of approximately 1m to allow a layer of stone and strengthening grid to be laid before the road surface is reinstated. 

When completed the surrounding area will be reinstated, it is anticipated that the road will re-open to traffic from mid-September 2021.
