Balerno Water Network Improvements
We are installing a new pipe along Bridge Road and Lanark Road West.
Work is due to start Monday 20th May and is expected to take 6 months to complete.
Please note that we are removing all traffic management to accommodate the Gala Week activities on both Monday night (20th) and on Saturday 25th.
We will be working from the roundabout at the bottom of Bridge Road, up to Lanark Road West and travelling eastbound to the junction with Sommerville Road. The work will take place in 100 metre sections to minimise disruption.
The new 700 metre long, 250mm diameter plastic pipe replaces a 60 year old cast iron pipe which has come to the end of its serviceable life and is the source of low pressure issues in nearby areas.
During the project, works will take place using temporary traffic lights which will be manually controlled during peak hours to help reduce disruption. The work will be done in sections as the project progresses along the route of the pipeline.
The team will be taking advantage of the longer summer days by extending their working hours in an effort to complete the project as quickly as possible.
We will will be updating this page regularly with our progress.
