Residents living on a street in Keith are being asked to be patient as their water supplies are being badly disrupted because of essential upgrades.
Scottish Water say that the work on the town’s Moss Street will begin on Monday, October 13 and are aimed at alleviating flood problems in the area.
At a cost of around £840,000 the project is to be led by George Leslie Ltd and will see a new water main put in place with an underground sewer laid between the junctions at Findlater Lane and Broad Lane.
Regional manager for Scottish Water, Steve Scott, said the work should be completed within five months. While the work is being undertaken there will be no vehicle access from Moss Street to Findlater Lane, Smiddie Lane, Fairmers Lane, Spinners Lane or Broad Lane.
Mr Scott added: “The works will be done in sections and traffic management will move as per the progress of the work.
“Local diversions will be in place and will be adequately signed.
“There will be some interruptions to the water supply and all customers affected by this will be warned beforehand.”
