In My Area

Long Lane

Every so often, we need to replace old water pipes. That’s because the risk of bursts increases as the years pass – and we’re really keen to avoid this. Therefore, we’re going to replace some of the old water pipes on Long Lane with brand new ones.

Our progress so far


Road closure

To allow us to carry out this work safely we’ve agreed with the local authority to slow down the flow of traffic using a road closure around our working area, a diversion route will be in place.

Roads affected:

Long Lane

Upcoming work

We’ll be carrying out our work starting on Long Lane from the direction of Ashbourne/Meadow Lane week commencing 9 November 2020 and the team will work along Long Lane towards the railway line and completing our work just past Brook Cottage by the start of February 2021.

Work in Progress

Our team has now broken up for Christmas so the road closure has been lifted. They will return on 4 January where the road closure will be reinstated.
