Clackmannanshire Council's Incident Management Team met this afternoon to hear the latest progress on the restoration of gas to properties in Dollar, Coalsnaughton and Tillicoultry.
Positive progress has continue with 95% of houses in Dollar and Coalsnaughton now reconnected and supply to 700 homes in Tillicoultry also restored.
Engineers from SGN are visiting every affected property and providing they can gain access they will be able to restore the gas supply this evening.
Chief Executive Elaine McPherson said: "It has been a tremendous partnership effort to get to this stage and hopefully by later tonight the majority of people should have had their gas supply restored.
"The Council will continue to engage with SGN until the incident is completely resolved. I would like to thanks the many people who have been involved in what has been a great community-wide response."
