Severn Trent set to upgrade water pipes in Warwick

Tuesday 23 July 2019

Severn Trent will begin work to install new water pipes in Warwick next week, ensuring residents in the area continue to enjoy a reliable water supply.

The four-month project, beginning on Monday 29th July, will see roads next to Warwick Hospital fitted with brand new water pipes, replacing aging ones that are more prone to bursts and leaks.

The scheme has been carefully designed to ensure access to Warwick Hospital is maintained at all times, which will see temporary road closures, traffic lights, road signs and barriers put in place on roads affected by the work, to keep our teams, pedestrians and road users safe.

Roisin McBain from Severn Trent, said: “As water pipes get old, they can become weaker and crack, making them prone to leaks and bursts.  We want to make sure our customers’ water supply in the area is always there when they need it, which is why we’re laying new water pipes in Warwick.

“Although we’ll be working on roads close to Warwick Hospital, a lot of planning has gone into making sure access will be maintained the entire time. However, we appreciate this will still inconvenience people in the area. We’re doing all we can to help minimise disruption and keep everyone affected up-to-date with progress.”

Roisin added: “Once all of the work is complete, the area will have a modern water network that will provide wonderful water for many years to come.”
