An Aberdeen road which was closed for more than a week after a burst water main caused flooding is set to shut again for more repair work.
Braehead Way was closed at its junction with Scotstown Road for repairs and Scottish Water had said further work would be needed.
The road, which had reopened on November 9, was shut following flooding on October 31 caused by a burst water main on nearby Cardens Knowe, which in turn caused supply problems for nearby residents.
A road closure will now be in place at Braehead Way between its junctions with Scotstown Road and Turnberry Crescent.
It will take place between 7am on Thursday and 10pm on Saturday.
A Scottish Water spokesman today apologised to residents and motorists for any delays they face due to the work.
He said: “This work is to carry out repairs to the road surface after consequential damage following a burst main in the area recently.
“The traffic management in place has been agreed in consultation with Aberdeen City Council.
“We apologise for any inconvenience while this work is carried out and thank customers and motorists for their patience.”
After the flooding, the water authority had a team working overnight to restore the supply of water to properties in the area.
Scottish Water had also said the repair work which left the road shut for more than a week had taken “longer” than it should have.
In a road order notice Fraser Bell, head of legal and democratic services at Aberdeen City Council, said the closure was to “protect public safety”.

He said: “The effect of the order is to impose a temporary prohibition of driving on Braehead Way, between its junction with Scotstown Road and its eastern junction with Turnberry Crescent.
“Access to properties will be maintained provided that the works necessitating the order do not preclude the taking of such access at the time in question.
“There will also be a prohibition of waiting on Braehead Way, Aberdeen, between its junction with Scotstown Road and its eastern junction with Turnberry Crescent, and also on Turnberry Gardens, between its junction with Braehead Way and the driveway at No 9 Turnberry Gardens.
“The measures are necessary to protect public safety during carriageway repair works being carried out by Scottish Water.”
Councillor John Reynolds, who represents Bridge of Don, said: “The question I have for Scottish Water is why the road has to close again.
“Residents have already had to deal with this when the water main burst back in October and now they’ll have to deal with it again with the maintenance scheduled for later this month.
“I don’t know why it couldn’t have all been done at the same time.”
