DISRUPTION on two Haddington town centre streets is set to last for three weeks.

Scottish Water is carrying out “essential sewer network upgrades” with work currently taking place on the town’s Court Street, with work also planned for neighbouring High Street.

A Scottish Water spokeswoman said: “We are working on High Street and Court Street in Haddington to access manholes to survey and repair sewer pipes.

“Work has started and is due to last until Friday, August 6.

"The work will continue to be carried out in four different stages – one manhole in each stage.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

A letter sent out to properties on Court Street, outside East Lothian Council’s headquarters, John Muir House, notes: “This work will be minimal disruption and traffic management will be set up in various locations.”

Currently, there is no parking on Court Street, with the works being carried out from 8am to 6pm throughout the working week.

Work began yesterday (Monday) and is expected to last about three weeks.

A spokesperson for Scottish Water said: “There will be no disruption to your water or drainage supply during this work.

“We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding while we complete this essential work.”

The roadworks also mean that Brewery Park, which connects Court Street to John Muir House, is closed until August 6.

Access for anyone visiting the Covid-19 testing unit in the car park is via Neilson Park Road.
