Severn Trent to deliver £750,000 sewer renewal programme in Worcester  

4th January 2023

Severn Trent is preparing to deliver an upgrade to the sewer network on Albany Terrace in Worcester. 

The £750,000 programme will replace older pipes to ensure the reliability of the network and meet demands from a growing population and climate change. 

The works will be delivered along Albany Terrace, from Stephenson Terrace to the junction with Britannia Square. The team will start work on Thursday 5 January 2022 with everything planned to be finished and back to normal by the end of April 2023. 

Due to the location of the pipes which will be replaced and to safeguard the teams who will be conducting the work and other road users, a phased programme of road closures will be put into place along Albany Terrace.

This work follows the announcement last week of a £2 million upgrade to pipework due to take place in the Evesham in the new year.

Paul Hughes, Communications Officer at Severn Trent, said: “These works are part of our ongoing investment into our networks in Worcestershire to ensure that our infrastructure is ready to meet both current and future demands.

“We always try to minimise any disruption in the areas in which we’re working, however, to safeguard our teams and other road users, we will be closing Albany Terrace to through traffic. 

“To allow access to roads off Albany Terrace, the road closure will be phased, with diversionary routes via Britannia Square clearly signposted. We know that road works can be frustrating and would like to thank residents in advance for their understanding while we complete these important works as quickly as possible.”
