Roadworks at Guardbridge have been completed – over a week ahead of schedule.
Main Street Guardbridge has been closed since February 15 as part of pipe laying work for the £25 million Green Energy Centre being built by the University of St Andrews at the former paper mill at Guardbridge and was scheduled to reopen on April 8.
Contractors Vital Energi onfirmed that the road reopened at 4pm today – 10 days ahead of schedule.
The diversions which have been in operation directing traffic around Guardbridge through Balmullo have been lifted.
Ashley Walsh, contracts manager for contractors Vital Energi, said: “Laying pipes through Guardbridge and across the River Eden was a challenging operation which was scheduled to take eight weeks.
“We are pleased that due to 24 hour, seven-day working and largely good weather we have been able to reduce that by 10 days.
“On behalf of Vital Energi and the contractors who have been working with us on this phase of the project, I would like to thank the residents of Guardbridge who have been understanding throughout what has been a period of great disruption for them.”
