Road users in the Lochwinnoch area are being warned about possible traffic delays as Scottish Water upgrade a section of water mains.

A half a mile of water main with new plastic pipe is being installed to help reduce the risk of bursts and improve security of supply.

The work, which will be carried out for Scottish Water by contractor Caledonia Water Alliance (CWA), is due to start on 13th July and is expected to be complete in about six weeks.

The work has been planned in liaison with Renfrewshire Council and will be carried out prior to the council beginning a roads resurfacing programme of work.

Work will start at Johnshill at the junction of Johnshill and Bridesmill Road and working down to the junction of Johnshill and East End.

Traffic management will be in place for the duration of the work. There will be some local disruption to traffic and parking restrictions in place while the work is carried out but pedestrian access will be maintained.

Scottish Water “apologise in advance to any affected road users and thanks them for their patience and understanding.”
