A Scottish Water spokesman said: ” “Our contractor was on site in Crown Street today to carry out essential repairs to 3 manhole covers.
“The location of the covers in the street meant that this work could not take place safely without closing the road to traffic, but the work was planned in consultation with the council to avoid the busiest times.
“Surrounding homes and businesses were contacted in advance to make them aware of the work.
“We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused while the road closure was in place and thank customers for their patience while our team completed this essential maintenance work.”
