Project Overview

On behalf of Perth & Kinross Council, our commercial subsidiary Scottish Water Horizons, are carrying out essential upgrades to the sewer infrastructure which serves Broxden Business Park in Perth.

The project involves the installation of over a kilometre of new foul sewer, connecting a pumping station in Tweed Place to the gravity sewer in Glasgow Road. Once complete, this work will enable the pumping station and associated infrastructure to be transferred into the long-term ownership and care of Scottish Water.

 

These upgrades will allow us to continue to meet customers in the areas waste water needs for years to come, while also reducing risk of localised flooding.

At a glance:

  • Upgrades to sewer network that serves Broxden Business Park
  • Installation of over 1km of foul sewer
  • Project estimated to last around 10 months
  • Work being carried out  by Scottish Water Horizons on behalf of Perth & Kinross Council

Why this work is needed

 

The work being carried out is essential to connect the foul sewer network at Broxden Business Park to the city’s main sewer system, so that we can ensure it continues to serve customers well for years to come.

 

As well as enabling the pumping station and associated infrastructure to be transferred into the long-term ownership and care of Scottish Water, this project will also help reduce the risk of flooding in the Lamberkine Drive area. 

 

What happens next

The first phase of work will begin at the junction of Mailer Way with Glasgow Road, where temporary traffic lights are expected to be in place for around 4 weeks to allow work to take place safely. You can see below a graphic which shows each phase of this project and the time estimated for them to take. The project as a whole is expected to continue for around 10 months.
