The civil engineering project for Winchburgh Developments, designed by Sweco, involves replacing existing water mains down Faucheldean Road and Glendevon Track with associated resurfacing works.

The experienced project team from Morrison Construction’s Water Scotland business established site in September, placing required traffic management signs around the site of the installation.

The construction programme for the water mains upgrade is due to be completed in early 2020.

Morrison Construction Water Scotland Regional Director, Stephen Slessor said: ‘‘We look forward to continuing the successful working relationship with our client Winchburgh Developments and designer Sweco to successfully deliver this essential project for the local community.

‘‘The increase in capacity the installation of this new water main provides is vital to supporting the exciting future development plans for the Winchburgh community.

‘‘During construction we will continue to engage with all stakeholders within the local community.’’
