In My Area

Main Street, Elton

We’re investing around £340,000 and replacing 2,420 metres of water pipes in the Main Street area to ensure supplies of wonderful water for the future. 

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 by closing sections of the road around our working area. Access to properties, businesses and pedestrians will be maintained and a signed diversion route will be in place.

Our Progress

Start date

26 July 2021

Upcoming work

The team will start work on Chadwick Hill near to Islington Lane week commencing 26 July 2021. The team will then move onto Winster Lane, Main Street, West End and complete on Gratton Lane near to Oddo House Farm at the start of October. 

Work in Progress

We’re sorry for the delay, but due to the unexpected road conditions, the work hasn’t progressed as quickly as we had planned. We’ve agreed with the local authority to extend the Road closure on Main Street until the 24 September 2021 to make sure we can get you your new water pipes as quickly as possible. The team will then carry on working along West End until the end of October.

We’re pleased to confirm that from Monday 6 September 2021 we’ll be able to allow the school buses 172 (Hulleys) and 169 (Stagecoach) access in the mornings and evening at the bus stop close to Back Lane. The daytime journeys for the 172-bus service will resume from the bus stop close to Back Lane on Monday 13 September, as the team progress past Moor lane further bus stops will be back open. 

Work completed

Estimated completion date
