Work to complete essential sewer repairs in Inverness city centre is to be extended, Scottish Water has advised.  
An initial project to repair a sewer main in Duncraig Street is currently on-going and is expected to last until mid-March.

However, a further issue with a section of sewer on King Street between the junction of Duncraig Street and Greig Street has now been identified and additional repair work will need to be completed as soon as possible. 
Work will therefore move to this part of the sewer after the first phase is complete and is expected to last approximately three months.

To allow teams to work safely this section of King Street will be closed to all vehicles for the project’s duration.  
Project Manager Thomas Hannan said:  
“We recognise that, while essential, these works will cause some significant disruption for residents in the area, as well as for families with children attending St Joseph’s Primary, for which we would like to apologise.  
“We are contacting residents and businesses directly to advise them of the arrangements we’ve agreed with Highland Council regarding parking and bin collections while the project is being carried out.

“Due to the nature of the work, there will be a degree of construction noise from heavy machinery which we will seek to minimise as far as possible. 
“We would like to thank residents and road users in the area in advance for their patience while we complete this work, which will ensure the sewer system can continue to serve residents effectively and protect the environment for years to come.” 
The work is being completed on Scottish Water’s behalf by contractor MacAulay Askernish.
