Severn Trent begins network upgrade in Coventry this week
Monday 25th October 2021
Severn Trent will begin essential work to upgrade the water network in Coventry this week, providing customers with a modern and reliable water supply for years to come.
The water company is investing £3 million to replace around 500 metres of ageing water pipes with brand-new ones in the Little Heath area of the city.
Work will begin from Monday 25th October along Elmsdale Road and Barton Road, and is expected to take ten weeks to complete. To keep Severn Trent engineers and other road users safe, a temporary road closure and traffic lights will be put in place at certain points throughout the project.
Shannon Currall from Severn Trent said: “We want to make sure customers in Coventry have a modern and reliable water supply for years to come. That’s why we’re beginning work thisweek to replace around 500 metres of ageing water pipes with brand-new ones in the Little Heath area of the city.
“We’ll be doing everything we can to minimise the disruption and we’d like to thank everyone in advance for their patience as we get this essential work done.”
The work beginning this week forms part of a wider pipe replacement scheme across Warwickshire, which will upgrade 15 kilometres of water pipes in total, running up until April 2022.
