Birnam to Logierait project


Project update: 31 May

Phase 3 - B898 - section 18 completed

As of today (Friday 31 May), we have completed our pipelaying work on the B898 to the end of section 18 (as shown on the map below). This takes us to a location called Kincraigie South next to the Kinnaird Estate. Next week work will start on section 19, which is at the far northern end of the project, at the Logierait bridge road.

As stated in our project leaflet, over the coming few months we'll be working southwards back towards the Kinnaird Estate to complete sections 19, 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24. Because of the narrow road width along the majority of the remaining sections of the B898, the road will be closed to all traffic, apart from keeping open to pedestrians and cyclists as before. Until now, our teams have been as flexible as possible in allowing vehicles to pass when it was safe to do so, however for safety reasons, they will no longer be able to allow any vehicles to pass. Our thanks again for your patience in this matter.

Reaching stage 19 of 24 at this time, means progress on the overall project continues to be very good. Our estimate is we're approximately three weeks ahead of schedule, despite recent adverse weather conditions.

We will continue to keep you informed with the progress we are making on the project with regular updates and an accompanying map.

There's more information here in our project leaflet.

Phase 2 - A9

The majority of phase two of our critical work in the A9 is now complete. We do however, have some work still to complete at the railway bridge, but to keep any disruption to an absolute minimum, this is being carried out under monitored traffic management on weekdays between the hours of 9pm and 6am. 


Phase 1 - Birnam, Little Dunkeld and Inver

All work to lay the gas pipeline through Birnam, Little Dunkeld, under the River Braan and through Inver are now complete. In the next two weeks we'll be checking to see if there's any verge or grassed areas that require reinstatement.  

We'd like to thank all local residents and businesses for their patience and understanding as we completed this phase of our gas infrastructure project.


Project background

One of our gas pipes runs close to the River Tay, and due to some erosion on the river bank we need to move and upgrade this section of our network.

Our gas network in the area remains safe and there's no immediate risk, but we want to carry out our construction work now to ensure a safe and reliable gas supply.

Our new pipeline will run between Birnam and Logierait and the project is being carried out by our contractors Advance Group Limited and Morrison Energy Services.

Here's our CEO Mark Wild with more information on our critical project.
