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 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 now replaced both the pipes and removed all our traffic management. Thanks for bearing with us.
Project 7 - Brampton Road
We're carrying out some pipe connections. The temporary traffic management has been removed, but we're still completing some further work in the grass verge which is expected to continue until the end of August.
Project 10 - Denton Street, Charlotte Street and Milbourne Street
We started our work in this area in September 2019, but due to the unstable building at Victoria Viaduct we had to stop while work the safety work took place.
Once we were given council approval to return we were able to continue to renew the water pipes along Milbourne Street, Charlotte Street and Denton Street at the beginning of July 2020.
Our traffic management has now been removed and we're resurfacing the areas where we've worked.
Thank you for your continued patience while we're working to improve the water pipe network in Carlisle.
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.
