Buckie Sewer Upgrade

View our video here.

Scottish Water is working to improve the sewer network in Buckie, alongside alliance partner aBV.

The £700,000 project will see a new larger diameter sewer pipe laid between St Peter’s Terrace and Sutherland Crescent in the town, to mitigate historic flooding.

The work will be carried out in four phases, beginning on 28 May and lasting for approximately six months.

Phase 1

A road closure of St Peter’s Terrace will be in place from 28 May until the end of June, to allow the new sewer pipe to be laid from St Peter’s Primary School up to the end of St Peter’s Terrace. During this time, 3-way traffic lights will also be installed on St Peter’s Road to carry out a water main diversion to facilitate the new sewer install.

Phase 2

St Andrew’s Square will then be closed during the school summer holidays to continue laying the new pipe from the junction at St Peter’s Terrace across St Andrew’s Square leading onto St Peter’s Road.

Phase 3

Work will then move to St Peter’s Road, which will be closed from the end of school summer holidays until mid-September, up to the junction of Sutherland Crescent.

Phase 4

During the final phase a road closure will be in place on Sutherland Crescent from mid-September to October, to lay the new pipe from the junction of St Peter’s Road to outside No. 2 Sutherland Crescent, completing the project work.
