Flooding works are a welcome relief for fed-up residents

A project to improve the waste water infrastructure and tackle flooding which has affected two properties in Torrance has been completed.

Contractors working for Scottish Water have finished a £420,000 project to install a new sewer and eight manholes along Park Crescent into Woodmill Park.

The work has improved the local network and tackled flooding issues which have affected two properties in Park Crescent.

The project took almost five months to complete.

Joanna Peebles, Scottish Water’s regional communities team manager for the West of Scotland, said: “Scottish Water is always working hard to do the right thing for the environment in Scotland and we identified essential improvements that were required to our waste water infrastructure in this part of Torrance.

“These improvements will reduce the risk of flooding and we are sure that the householders directly affected, and others, will welcome the completion.”
