Taking Care Of Water Supply In Fenwick

08 February 2019

Scottish Water is investing around £540,000 on upgrades to its water infrastructure in Fenwick, East Ayrshire. 

On Monday 18 February work to replace approximately 1.7 miles of pipework will begin on Kilmaurs Road between Fenwick and a point near to Rowallan Castle Golf Club.

The work is being undertaken by Scottish Water’s contactor Clancy Docwra and is expected to take around three months for completion. 

Two-way lights will be in operation at two separate locations on Kilmaurs Road; initially with the first set at Fenwick and the second set at a point half way between Rowallan Castle Golf Club and Fenwick. 

These temporary lights will be in operation on a rolling basis for around eight weeks, moving along Kilmaurs Road as the work progresses. Traffic management has been arranged in liaison with the local roads department.

Kilmaurs Road will be closed for a number of days after the works are completed to allow carriageway resurfacing to be carried out. Further details will be provided nearer the time.

Ruaridh MacGregor, Scottish Water’s corporate affairs regional manager, said: 
“This upgrade work will help reduce the chance of pipes bursting and means that our customers in the area continue to enjoy clear, fresh water. 

“We’d like to thank all road users and customers in advance for their patience and understanding during this work.”

He added: “Some customers may experience a change in water pressure and/or discoloured water during the works. If this happens, simply turn on the cold water tap in your kitchen and let the water flow slowly until it runs clear.”
