Scottish Water is to carry out work in the Blackness Road area of Dundee in the coming weeks as part of a £5 million upgrade of the network in the city.
The work, which begins on Monday for two weeks, is being carried out by Scottish Water partner Caledonia Water Alliance and will involve lining an additional two sections of water mains in Blackness Road between Rosefield Street and Ure Street.
There will also be mains replacement work at the junction of Glenagnes Road.
The new work comes just six months after the last disruption on the road from Scottish Water.
For the work between Rosefield Street and Ure Street temporary traffic lights will be in place between 7am and 7pm.
On Glenagnes Road traffic management will be used but no road closures will be required, although there may be some parking restrictions.
The work has been scheduled to take place from Monday to coincide with the school holidays in an effort to minimise disruption as much as possible.
Gavin Steel, from Scottish Water, apologised for any further disruption caused.
He said: “We understand the frustration of local residents and businesses.
“We sincerely apologise for this, but we have identified that this extra phase is essential to ensure that we are successful in securing a clean, fresh drinking water supply for our customers long into the future.”
