What We Are Doing

The work involves the upsizing of over 300 metres of sewer pipe, with an underground storm tank being installed in a grassed area south of Crow Wood Terrace.

A short stretch of Crow Wood Terrace and Crow Wood Road will be closed for the duration of the project. A diversion will be in place via Laurelbank Road. 

When new pipework is being installed along the A80, a short stretch of the road will be reduced to one lane westbound for around 3 months. The exact dates have yet to be confirmed but will be communicated as soon as it is possible to do so. The existing pathway along this stretch will be closed and a temporary walkway set up to allow safe passage and maintain access by foot. 

The project is being delivered by Scottish Water’s alliance partner amey binnies and is due for completion by August 2022. 

 

Why We Are Doing This

The area has previously been affected by sewer flooding.

The work being done here will increase the capacity of the local waste water network and will provide extra storage during times of heavy rainfall.
