Scottish Water is preparing to carry out work to renew a key section of sewer that runs beneath Crieff Road in Aberfeldy. 

The work will be carried out by Scottish Water’s delivery alliance partner amey-Black & Veatch (aBV) with their subcontractor Environmental Techniques.

Work will start from Monday 6th May and will involve use of traffic lights on a rolling basis for around 8 weeks as work progresses between Crieff Road’s junction with Bank Street / Kenmore Street and the Birks of Aberfeldy car park. 

The majority of the work will be carried out using an innovative sewer re-lining technique, which enables the existing sewer to be renewed without widespread excavation of the road surface.  Three short sections of open excavation will still be necessary and this work will be carried out at the start of the project. This technique means that the work can be carried out faster, with a significant reduction in disruption to the community.

The work is needed to ensure that Aberfeldy’s waste water network can continue to serve customers and protect the local environment for years to come.

While traffic lights will be in use to allow work to take place safely, there will be no road closures associated with the work and no restrictions on access to Breadalbane Community Campus.  There should be no impact on the normal operation of customers’ drains while the sewer is renewed.
