Severn Trent brings work forward to benefit customers in Coalville

Tuesday 30th May 2017

Severn Trent starts work today on part of its £650,000 investment installing new sewer pipes on Ashby Road in Coalville.

The company was due to start work in the summer, but following talks with Leicestershire County Council, it’s now replacing a section of pipes early to help minimise disruption to local people.

Christopher Keys, from Severn Trent says: “Rather than wait for the summer holidays to start work, we were able to use the council’s existing road closure to get in and do this part early. This means when we start work again in the summer, we’ll cause less disruption as this part is already done.”

Severn Trent will be replacing the section of sewer pipe that runs from All Saints C of E Primary School to the junction of Chiswell Drive ahead of the work in the summer.

“Sewer flooding is something we don’t want anyone to experience, so projects like this are really important. By replacing our old pipes, this will help reduce bursts and make sure that our customers’ waste is taken away and treated properly.”

Severn Trent contract partners NMC Nomenca will be carrying out the work which is expected to be completed by the end of the week.

Christopher adds, “We always aim to cause as little disruption as possible, so being able to complete this section now is hugely beneficial for local people. Not only does it mean the summer work will be easier, but also means that we’re making the needed improvements to the local sewerage system sooner, which will help safeguard the area for the future.”
