Morrison Construction have just begun work on a £1m water main upgrade for Winchburgh.

The idea is to future proof the existing system by increasing capacity fourfold.

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

The project team from Morrison Construction’s Water Scotland business established the building site in September, placing diversions around it.

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.’’
