Work is due to start on a project to replace water mains in Hoar Cross

Work is due to start on an essential project to replace water mains in Hoar Cross.

The project is part of our ongoing improvement programme resulting in improved water quality and a reliable water supply to customers.

We will be replacing about 1150 metres of water main along Becks Lane and Lower Hoar Cross Road.

The work will start on Monday 1 June 2020 and will last for approximately six to eight weeks.

Will traffic be affected?
In order to carry out the works as safely and efficiently as possible in the narrow roads, there will be temporary road closures on Lower Hoar Cross Road and Becks Lane with a suitable diversion in place. Access will be maintained to frontages at all times.

We are committed to investing in new water mains, to reduce leakage by at least 15% and to ensure our customers continue to receive a reliable and high-quality water supply.
