Bridge of Weir Sewer Upgrade

Main Street

Main Street in Bridge of Weir is prone to sewer flooding during periods of extreme weather.

What We Are Doing

We are installing a new section of sewer under Mill Brae and part of Main Street, opposite the Amaretto Restaurant.

There will be some parking restrictions, temporary traffic lights in operation at times as well as a full closure of a short section of Main Street to install the new pipework.

Local businesses will be open as usual for the duration of the project.

Work began on Monday 26 June 2023 and is expected to take approximately six months to complete.

Why We Are Doing It

There has been an issue with waste water surcharging from a manhole in the village during periods of heavy rain for a number of years.

Flood water spills down an access road towards Main Street and also pools on the uneven surface when the flooding subsides.

The project will increase the capacity of the local sewer network, drastically reducing the likelihood of it flooding in future.

Update February 2024

Work to reinstate Main Street at the junction with Mill Brae under two-way traffic lights has been completed.

This was the final traffic management required to deliver the project.

We would like to thank residents and road users for their patience, support and understanding over the course of the past few months while we worked to better protect Bridge of Weir from sewer flooding during extreme weather.

We are pleased to have delivered this extremely important project as quickly and safely as possible for the long-term benefit of all.
