Traffic management and planned work in Carlisle

  • Project 7 - Field next to Carlisle Youth Zone

    We still have more work to complete and expect to be finished in this location in mid-2021.

  • Project 7 - Rickerby and Stanwix area

    We're working to replace water pipes in the Rickerby and Stanwix area as detailed in the overview map.

    We've now installed all the new pipe and are carrying out the testing phases of work.  Once this is completed, we'll begin to connect the new sections of pipe into the existing water pipe network.

    During our work in Rickerby Park, there will be some temporary footpath closures and areas which are fenced off for safety, but you can still enjoy other areas of the park as normal.

    From Monday, 12th October the junction of Longlands Road and Brampton Road will be closed until December 2020. So we can complete the work safely there will also be temporary two-way traffic lights in place on Brampton Road.

    Our team are also working on grassed areas in Lansdowne Crescent and Lansdowne Close to connect the new pipes and also in the footpath on Newfield Drive. We expect to finish this work in December 2020.

    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.

  • Project 7 - Longlands Road and Millcroft

    There's a temporary road closure and two-way traffic lights in place at the junction of Longlands Road and Millcroft.  This is expected to be in place until Friday, 20th November.

  • Project 7 - Windsor Way and Pennington Drive

    There are temporary three-way traffic lights in place at the junction of Windsor Way and Pennington Drive.  These will be in place until December 2020.

  • 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.
