Traffic information

The majority of our new water pipeline will be constructed within agricultural land, however there are some points where the pipes cross roads and water courses.

We understand roadworks are inconvenient, and our teams will be working as quickly as possible to ensure any disruption is kept to a minimum.  We’ll ensure signs provide advance warning and any diversion routes are clearly posted to help direct traffic safely around our working areas. Where it is safe to do so we will try to maintain pedestrian access through our closures, but this may not always be possible.

We’re currently working at the following locations and have road closures or traffic management in place.  Thank you for your patience while our teams are working on the road.  If you have any queries please get in touch on 0345 672 3723.

During the current dry weather period we're helping to use water wisely.  You may notice that we're not operating road sweepers to help keep the roads clear of dust. We hope you understand and thanks for bearing with us.

New treated water pipeline - 01

We'll have two teams working at separate locations to carry out road crossings on the new treated water pipeline route. The first team started work at Hotchberry Brow and will be working at each crossing point towards High Leys.

A second team will be working at various locations along the pipe route towards Summergrove, they will then move onto the crossing points from Kelton Fell to High Leys. Advanced notices will be in place at the closure locations as our work progresses with diversion routes clearly signed.
