Road restrictions will be in place in an Aberdeenshire town from next week as work to replace part of a sewer gets underway.
Engineers from Scottish Water will renew around 50 metres of pipeline in Bath Street in Stonehaven, as well as reconstructing a manhole cover.
To allow the work to be carried out safely, the road will be closed to traffic vehicles at its junction with Ann Street and Belmont Brae from Monday for around three weeks.
A signposted diversion will be in place – pedestrian access will be possible at all times.
Scottish Water Communications Manager Joanna Peebles said: “Our investigations have identified that this work is needed to ensure the sewer network can continue to serve our customers and protect the local environment.
“The location of the sewer within the road means that a road closure is the only way to complete the work safely. We appreciate this will involve disruption for customers and road-users and our team on site will do all they can to keep this to a minimum. In particular, vehicle access will be maintained to all driveways throughout the work and the entrance to Stonehaven Community Centre will remain open.
“We would ask customers to allow some extra time for their journeys and thank them for their patience while we complete this essential work.”
