Scottish Water alongside our alliance partner Amey Black & Veatch (aBV) are carrying out a programme of investigation works on the waste water network in the Merchant Quarter area of Aberdeen. Following our recent site investigation works in the Merchant Quarter area during February, there is some further localised work that we need to complete.

Additional Planned Works:

We will be carrying out an additional number of site investigations in Trinity Quay and Shore Brae.  The information we obtain from this will allow us to determine and plan future improvements to our waste water network to alleviate local flooding issues in this area.

The site investigations will comprise of the following:

  • Trial Hole excavations
  • Bore Holes

This will allow us to determine ground conditions as well as locate positions of other underground services in the area.

What you need to know:

Site investigation works are planned to take place from Saturday 30th March 2019 and will last approximately 3 weeks.

Where we are working:

Further site investigations will be required in the following streets:: 

  • Trinity Quay (WestBound from Market Street to Regent Quay)
  • Shore Brae (from Trinity Quay to Shiprow)
