Severn Trent invites residents in Stourport-on-Severn to learn about new pipes in their area 

Tuesday 1 October 2019

Severn Trent is hosting a community drop-in session for residents in the Dunley area of Stourport-on-Severn next week, where they can hear about plans for new water pipes in their community.

The water company is replacing 6km of ageing pipes in the surrounding area, as part of a £600,000 scheme to improve the water supply and plans to meet with local residents to answer any questions or concerns.

A series of temporary road closures, traffic lights and diversions will be put in place throughout the project, which will begin on Monday 30th September on the B4196 from the junction of Ridley Cross, moving towards Pearl Lane. The scheme is expected to finish in April 2020.

Catherine Webb from Severn Trent, said: “To ensure residents have a reliable water supply for many years to come, and to reduce the number of leaks and bursts in the area, we need to install 6km of brand new pipes stretching from Stourport to Martley.

“To carry out this vital work, we’ll need to put in place temporary road closures and traffic lights, in order to keep our teams, pedestrians and road users safe.

“We understand the disruption this will cause, which is why we’re hosting a drop-in session next week, so we can update residents, show them our plans and answer any questions they may have.”

The team from Severn Trent will be at Astley & Dunley Village Hall, Stourport-on-Severn, DY13 0RF on Wednesday 9 October from 4pm to 7pm.
