Scottish Water have announced that they will be upgrading 222 meters of pipe work in the Crianlarich area along Station Road.


The £120,000 investment comes after calls from Stirling MSP Bruce Crawford for a permanent solution to be sought following repeated bursts of the water main leaving many properties without running water.


It is hoped that this work will reduce the risk of further disruption by burst mains.


Commenting, Bruce Crawford said:


“This is very welcome news indeed, and Crianlarich locals who have been in touch with me will welcome this investment to fix the problem.


“The water main through the village had burst four times in as many months last year, leaving many homes and businesses without water for periods of time. It was clear this the situation needed more than just a plaster to fix the problem.


“I am pleased that Scottish Water has taken this situation seriously and is putting its money where its mouth is to deliver a more reliable water system through Crianlarich.”
