Planned improvements

The Pipeline- Lickhill to Frankley - Break Pressure Tank Romsley


In progress

21 Dec 2018

Estimated completion date
Upcoming work
Phase 4 - Completion expected end of 2018

With the Break Pressure Tank now complete we will carry out extensive testing. Teams will be on site carrying out reinstatement and landscaping work to screen the site from public view, this will involve a tree planting scheme.

Work in progress
Phase 3 - Spring 2018 to Winter 2018

Once the main structures are complete we will commence electrical and mechanical work. This includes fitting the pumps and pipework, installation of systems to power the facility, and also the instrumentation and controls which will monitor the works once it is operational.

Phase 2 - April 2017 to November 2018

We have constructed much of the outer structure of the Break Pressure Tank, with just the office left to build. We have started to landscape around the structure itself. We will now concentrate on the internal structure and the drainage around the building. Some parts of the facility will be brought to Romsley in component parts and put together on site. We'll also continue to lay new water mains in the surrounding fields.

Work completed
Phase 1 - March 2017 to April 2017

We have carried out preparations and ground work for the Break Pressure Tank. Activities included putting up fencing and stripping away some topsoil. We also carried out excavation work to create a flat working area and setting up the site offices and compound. Signage will be in place to advise road users of the site entrance. We have removed all of the soil from the area which is known as muckshifting.
