Work is set to start on a £2million Scottish Water project in Kinlochleven later this month.

The 12-month scheme, which is being delivered by Corrie Construction, will see around 4.8km of water main rehabilitated throughout the village. Work will get under way on Wades Road on Monday October 25.

Project manager Hugh MacPherson said this is a significant project for Kinlochleven which is aimed at ensuring we continue to supply customers with clear, fresh drinking water into the future and reduce the chance of burst pipes.

‘The initial stage of the project will commence at the southern end of Wade Road and traffic management will be in place to allow work to be carried out safely, which will include the use of temporary traffic lights,’ added Mr MacPherson.

‘There will also be some access and parking restrictions and our on-site team will speak to anyone impacted by these.

‘During the work we may need to turn off your water supply. If we do, we will send you further information at least 48 hours in advance, detailing the dates and times that your supply will be affected and what to do.

‘We would like to apologise to local residents and road users for any inconvenience caused by this essential work and thank them in advance for their patience and understanding while it is completed.’
