Traffic management and planned work in Carlisle

  • Projects 4 and 5 - Warwick Road

    We understand our work along Warwick Road has caused traffic delays and we really do appreciate your patience.

    There are two large pipes that run along Warwick Road which help us to distribute water around the city. We've replaced one of the pipes and have made some changes to the flow direction, so we can replace the water pipe on the southern side of Warwick Road. This stage of work started on Thursday 9th January.

    There's a one-way system in place from Monday 20th January for traffic heading west into the city centre on Warwick Road. The diversion route is clearly signed to direct traffic onto Victoria Place and Lismore Place for approximately 16 weeks.  For safety Broad Street at the junction of Warwick Road is closed.

    From Tuesday 14th April we'll have two-way traffic lights in place near the Beehive Public House for up to 4 weeks.


  • 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 early 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 Spring 2020.

  • Project 10 - Lorne Street

    We've removed the traffic management and will need to return to carry out some pipe connections.  This will take place once the demolition of the former Central Plaza hotel is completed.

  • Overnight work

    As work is completed on the larger pipes, we will 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 are working in stages and moving through the Stanwix, Carleton, Lowry Hill, Etterby and Belah areas to flush the smaller water pipes.

    We'll be using equipment that will generate noise, however our teams will do all they can to ensure any disruption is kept to an absolute minimum. Before we start this 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.
