Traffic management and planned work in Carlisle

  • Project 4 - Field next to Carlisle Youth Zone

    We still have a little more work to complete and expect to be finished in this location in Autumn 2020.

  • Project 4 - Field at the junction of Montgomery Way and Durranhill Road

    Inserting new sections of pipe into the existing water pipe which runs along Montgomery Way towards Victoria Road. This work will continue until Autumn 2020.

  • Projects 5 - Warwick Road

    We understand our work along Warwick Road caused traffic delays while we replaced two large water pipes which help us to distribute water around the city.

    Our work in this area is now finished. We're continuing with our programme and will be replacing pipes in the Stanwix and Rickerby areas.

    We really do appreciate your patience and thanks for bearing with us.


  • Project 7 - Rickerby and Stanwix area

    Work is due to start in mid-September to replace water pipes in the Rickerby and Stanwix area. We're planning to begin at Victoria Place and continue under the River Eden, through to Rickerby Park and then onto Longlands Road.

    We'll have several teams working at different locations to replace the water pipes and there will be some traffic management, so we can complete the work safely. We expect this will consist of temporary traffic lights, rather than road closures.

    This phase of our project is expected to be finished in Februrary 2021 and we'll keep this information updated as our work progresses, but if you do have any queries please get in touch and we'll be happy to help.  You can call us on 0345 672 3723.

  • Overnight work

    As work is completed on the larger pipes, we'll then start to clean the smaller pipe network.  This work often takes place at night when there is less demand for water and involves using high pressure water jetting to flush the pipes and remove any mineral deposits. 

    The team work in stages and move through the pipe network to flush the smaller water pipes. We use equipment that will generate noise, however our teams will do all they can to ensure any disruption is kept to an absolute minimum.

    We've temporarily put the smaller pipe cleaning work on hold, but before we start any work we'll send a card to let you know when we'll be working in your area.

    If you have any queries about our cleaning work please give us a call on 0345 075 0717 and we'll be happy to help.
