£500k Investment for Isle of Arran

Our £500,000 investment in upgrades to our water network infrastructure in Lamlash, Isle of Arran is set to continue.
From Monday 25 May, upgrade work will recommence in private land to the north of Benlister Road and is anticipated to take around five days for completion. The improvement work first began on Monday 28 October 2019 but had to be paused due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.  
While Scottish Water’s capital investment programme has temporarily halted to protect public health and limit potential further spread of the Coronavirus, in line with government guidance, works which have a critical impact on core water supply or waste water management are continuing. 

The project is being carried out by our contractors Clancy Docwra and involves upgrades to just under two miles of pipework in the village to help improve resilience of supply for customers.

Ruaridh MacGregor, Scottish Water’s corporate affairs manager in the west, said: “Scottish Water has a vital role to look after everyone’s water supply and this upgrade work to our water infrastructure in the village of Lamlash will ensure our customers can continue to enjoy clear, fresh drinking water. It will also help reduce the chance of pipes bursting.
“Scottish Water employees will be visible in the area carrying out this essential work. To protect both public health and our employees, they will adhere to government guidelines on social distancing. We’d like to thank the local community for their patience and understanding while this improvement work is undertaken.”
Any future road traffic management arrangements will be communicated if they are required.
