Bothwell Flood Alleviation Project
Scottish Water is carrying out a significant investment to help tackle the issue of flooding in Clydevale, Bothwell.
We are upgrading and diverting waste water infrastructure in the area.
Work began on Monday 30 October, with the entire project expected to take around five months for completion.
At a Glance
- Flood alleviation project
- Anticipated 5 months duration
- Delivered by Caledonia Water Alliance (CWA)
A significant investment project will help tackle sewer flooding in the area, helping to protect the local environment.
What We Are Doing
We are upgrading and diverting the sewer that runs under the communal garden area between Clydevale and Hamilton Road.
We will tunnel under the wooded area at the end of Clydevale, eliminating the requirement for an open excavation through the shared woods and the removal of the mature trees. This chosen method will reduce the number of vehicle movements during the works as less earth will need to be excavated from the area.
This work is being delivered by our alliance partner Caledonia Water Alliance (CWA), on our behalf.
Why We Are Doing It
This work is being carried out to help address the issue of flooding which has been a historical issue in the local area.
The improvements being made here will help protect the local environment.
We thank all local residents for their patience and understanding while we work to deliver these works. We will do all we can to work with the community to help minimise any disruption.
The project site compound is off Laighlands Road.
Works are ongoing in the field between Clydevale and Hamilton Road.
We are working in the field between Hamilton Road and Clydevale as part of our main project enabling works.
A section of stone wall at the gate into the field off Hamilton Road has been removed temporarily to allow access for plant and materials. We have hired specialist stonemasons for the wall to be re-assembled after the works.
Tree branches/vegetation ahs been trimmed back at the entrance to this field to enable safe access. Permissions have been secured from South Lanarkshire Council and a tree works order has been secured.
While residents of Clydevale will not be directly affected by these works in the field, they can expect to see some activity.
