Sewer works planned for James Street

THERE will be disruption in Carnoustie’s James Street for three weeks from Monday (February 14).

Scottish Water will be carrying out essential upgrades to the waste water network between its junction with Barry Road to the junction with Gibson Street.

The work involves open trench excavation to renew the existing sewer.

The work will be carried out in three stages. Week one will see the section from Barry Road to Westfield Place, week two from Westfield Place to Thomas Street and week three from Thomas Street to Gibson Street.

In a letter to James Street residents, Scottish Water states: “When work is being carried out in each section it will be necessary to close that section of James Street. Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout. There will be local traffic management / diversions in place for the duration of the work and we will make all reasonable efforts to minimise the impact of this.

“Although you will be able to use taps and flush toilets as normal, there will be times where we will ask you to minimise use. You will be notified of this.”

Scottish Water advises that hours of work will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and there may also be some weekend work.

They add that during the operation they will also be carrying out sewer improvement work in Barry Road.
