A KIRKCALDY east councillor has welcomed the start of works to replace a fractured sewage pipe in Dysart.

Arthur Morrison (pictured) said he was asked by the Dysart Regeneration Forum to become involved in discussions with Scottish Water to push for action.

The work involves replacing nine metres of sewer pipe on Shore Road and is expected to last three weeks.

The move comes after years of problems with the sewer system in Hot Pot Wynd. It is understood the pipe was fractured and as a result raw sewage has been spilling out from the drain, particularly after heavy rainfall.

Councillor Morrison said: “At the request of the Dysart Regeneration Forum I became involved in discussions with Scottish Water to help move things on and happily now we are seeing some action on the ground.”

A Scottish Water spokesman said: “The work will be carried out on Shore Road and last approximately three weeks.”
