We are investing £11.5 million in Lower Weaver to benefit you and the local environment

To meet the needs of the growing population in the area, pumping stations will be built within our existing sites at Oakmere and Cuddington. Flows from the two treatment works will then be transferred onto Northwich Wastewater Treatment Works, via the new underground sewer pipe which will total 8.7km in length.

How will this affect you?

We’ll be starting work in May 2017 and the work will take place over two phases to keep disruption to a minimum.

You may need to allow a little extra time for your journey to work and school while we are working in the area. We’ll need to put some lane and road closures in place to allow us to work on different sections of the road.

We will have temporary traffic management in place on the following roads:

Phase 1 – Spring 2017 to Autumn 2017

  • Chester Road
  • Stoneyford Lane

Phase 2 – Summer 2017 to Spring 2018 

  • Cuddington Lane
  • Bag Lane
  • Bryn Cottage Lane
  • Millington Lane
  • Hodge Lane
  • Burrows Hill Lane

 The overview map (PDF 100 KB opens in a new window)  indicates where we'll be working.

To minimise the impact to you and complete our work as quickly as possible we’ll be working in the road in stages, moving our work area as we progress. We will be working Monday-Friday, and on occasion there may be a need to work weekends. We will be working in the highways until Spring 2018, but we will have a presence in the area until the end of Autumn 2018.

We’ll give advanced warning and make sure any road diversions are fully signposted to help direct you to where you need to be.

We may need to close public footpaths when we are working in the road, but again diversions will be clearly marked out to make sure you can get to where you want to be quickly and safely.

Construction work can be noisy and when we are digging in the road this can create additional noise. We know no one likes noise so we’ll do our best to keep this to a minimum.

But don’t worry you will still be able to flush the loo, wash the dishes and carry out all your daily activities that generates wastewater and we won’t need to turn off your water supply during our work, so you’ll still have great water on tap.

Thank you for bearing with us while we carry out our work. If you have any queries about this work please call us on 0345 672 3723, quoting project number MMB.80043277. We’ll be happy to help.
