Upgrade for Lytham's water supplies

The water supply is set to be made more secure for 43,000 people in Lytham.

United Utilities engineers will start work on Monday, June 17, replacing a section of a large pipe which supplies around 8000 customers. Engineers will be a regular presence in the area until late October 2019.

Engineers will predominately be working out of the way for the bulk of the project, but will need to cross Preston New Road, near to Little Plumpton.

During the road crossing, temporary traffic lights will be used. 

A United Utilities spokesperson, said: “This is a really important job. It will mean thousands of people in Lytham will have a more secure water supply now and into the future.”

“The majority of our work is taking place in fields, but when we do need to cross a main road, this will be carefully planned to minimise disruption to the local community.”

During the work United Utilities has confirmed people can continue to use their water as normal.
