Severn Trent launches major investment in Langley Mill

Tuesday 11th May 2021

Severn Trent will begin essential work to upgrade the water network in Langley Mill next week.

The water company is investing £3m to install over 12km of brand-new pipes across the Derbyshire village, to help reduce the number of leaks and bursts in the area.

Three teams of engineers will work at the same time throughout the project, to get the job done as quickly as possible, starting on Cromford Road, Argyle Street and Elnor Street from Monday 17th May. This major network upgrade is expected to take approximately 13 months to complete.

To keep Severn Trent engineers and other road users safe, temporary traffic lights and road closures will be in place throughout the project, moving across the village as the work progresses.

Lisa Orme from Severn Trent, said: “We know it’s still a challenging time for many people right now, but making sure our customers have a reliable water supply is as vital now as it’s ever been. That’s why you’ll see our teams working in the area to carry out these essential upgrades.

“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. Once all of the work is complete, the area will have a modern and reliable water network that will last for generations.”

The project team has created a 3D virtual drop-in centre for customers who want to know more about the work. The virtual tour is full of information and is available on the Severn Trent website.
