Scottish Water will be carrying out repair and upgrading works to the pumping station on the waterfront across from Arran Active from Monday June 10.

It follows the temporary repair which was carried out in April to bring in an electric pump, as previously reported by the Banner, following months of complaints from nearby residents of the noisy diesel generation which was being used.

Now the pipework, some of it 23ft (seven metres) underground,  will be permanently repaired as part of the works. However, the promenade will remain open and there will be no impact on the A841 or parking near the pumping station, as all works will be carried out within the site.

George Leslie Ltd will be carrying out these works on behalf of Scottish Water and the work is anticipated to last approximately three weeks.

A Scottish Water spokeswoman said: ‘We would like to thank everyone in advance for their patience and understanding, while we carry out these essential works.’
