Scottish Water will be carrying out essential water pipe replacement works on the A76 through Kirkconnel for five weeks, starting 6th December and pausing between 23rd December and 5th January. 

During the works, temporary traffic lights and parking restrictions will be in place in 100 metre sections along the road; starting at the junction with Needle Street moving west to just beyond Kirkconnel Parish Church. 

This essential work will replace around 388 metres of water pipe and will ensure customers can continue to enjoy fresh, clear drinking water. 

Scottish Water would like to thank residents and road users for their understanding and patience while we carry out these works.
