Sewer upgrade work due to get underway in Arbroath this summer has been postponed until later this year following consultation with the local community.

The £700,000 project, being carried out by Scottish Water’s alliance partner amey-Black & Veatch (aBV), will see a new control kiosk built and an upgrade of the existing pumping station at Old Shore Head in the town.

The work has been split into two phases, the first of which was carried out last month.

The second phase was due to start on the 2nd July and last for around 9 weeks, however, after feedback from the local community this has been postponed until September.

Clive Duncan from Scottish Water said:

“In preparing for this work we have held regular information events to ensure we keep the community updated and to listen to our customers’ feedback so we can make efforts to keep disruption to a minimum. Recent feedback reflected that it would be better for the community if the second phase of work could be deferred until after the busy summer period.

“We are grateful for the local community’s feedback throughout the planning stages and look forward to working with them when the second phase of work begins in September.”
