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've replaced water pipes in the Rickerby and Stanwix area as detailed in the overview map.

    There are some fenced off areas which will need to remain in place until we can carry out the reseeding work which is expected to be carried out during the spring (subject to suitable conditions).

  • Project 6 - Paddy's Market car park and Shaddongate

    We have a connection point within Paddy's Market car park and this will be temporarily closed while we carry out this work. If you have any queries, please contact Carlisle City Council.

    We have a lane closure on Shaddongate, next to Paddy's Market which will be in place until Friday 9 April 2021. 

  • 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 be in touch 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.
