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 will take place during the spring.

  • Project 6 - Victoria Place and St Aidan's Road

    We're planning to start our final phase of work on Monday 4th January. The project overview map illustrates the pipe replacement route. 

    A one-way system will be in place until the end of March 2021 for traffic heading east from the city centre onto Warwick Road. 

    The diversion route will be clearly signed to direct traffic onto Lowther Street and back onto Victoria Place.  St Aidans Road will be closed to through traffic whilst the one-way system is in place.

    Thanks for your patience while we're carrying out our final phase of work to improve the water quality for customers in Carlisle. We do understand roadworks are inconvenient.

  • Project 6 - Dukes Road, Hardwicke Circus

    From Monday 11 January we'll have stop/go traffic control at Dukes Road until the end of March 2021 and from Monday 22 February there will be a lane closure in place at Hardwicke Circus for approximately two weeks.

  • Project 6 - Chatsworth Square, Hartington Street, Strand Road

    From Monday 25 January we'll need to close the junction of Chatsworth Square at Victoria Place.  There will be two-way traffic lights in place on Strand Road outside Carlisle College until the end of February 2021.

  • Project 6 - West Tower Street

    From Monday 25 January the entry slip road from Castleway onto West Tower Street will be closed for two weeks.  The diversion route will be clearly signed and we've been working closely with Stagecoach to ensure bus services can continue to run with as little disruption as possible.   Once the entry slip road is re-opened, we'll move our working area which will require the exit slip road to be closed for two weeks.

  • Project 6 - Annetwell Street, Bridge Street, Milbourne Street

    From Monday 8 February we'll have two-way temporary traffic lights in place at Annetwell Street until mid-March 2021.  There wlll also be some temporary sections of footpath closure. From Monday 15 February the junction of Milbourne Street and Bridge Street will be closed until the end of March 2021 - access to Milbourne Court will be via Charlotte Street.

  • Project 6 - Paddy's Market car park

    Our final connection point is within Paddy's Market car park and this will be temporarily closed towards the middle of February 2021 while we carry out this work. If you have any queries, please contact Carlisle City Council.

  • 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.
