Scottish Water is undertaking essential work to replace some water mains in Kirkliston.

We will be replacing approximately 700 meters of pipe along Main Street and Newmains Road. These new pipes will reduce the risk of bursts and interruptions to customers supplies.

The work will be completed in three phases to minimise disruption to road users, homeowners and businesses.

Phase one which started on Monday 28th February has been completed. We have replaced the water main along Main Street from the junction of the Queensferry Road for approx. 100m heading west and are now in the second phase. We are currently replacing the remaining 180m pipes on Main Street to the junction of Manse Road. 

Main Street will remain open to road users however there will be temporary traffic lights set up for the duration of these works. These will be manually controlled during peak times.

During the third phase, we will replace around 415 meters of pipe in Newmains Road. This is estimated to start mid-May and will take around 7 weeks. 

We recognise that this is a busy section of road which has a number of businesses along and near it. We will work to minimise disruption to road users, residents and businesses. Local businesses remain open.

We thank local businesses and road users for their patience and understanding.
