Severn Trent’s £13.5m investment in Leicestershire continues in Wigston

Wednesday 10 April 2019

Water and waste company Severn Trent is to begin the next part of its £13.5m investment in Leicestershire.

The FTSE 100 Company is replacing aging water pipes in Wigston, with the next phase of work beginning next week.

Timothy Ip, from Severn Trent said: “Our work across Leicestershire continues to progress well, and we’re looking forward to when our customers will start to experience the benefits from this work.

“This work is making sure that the locals will have a reliable water supply for years to come, as newer pipes are less likely to burst and cause problems.”

Severn Trent working partners Amey, will be carrying out the work on behalf of the company that will see the company starting on Wakes Road.

This section of work will take around ten days to complete, and will require a temporary one way system for the duration of work.

“We’re sorry for any disruption this may cause, but it’s vital our teams and road users are kept safe as we work,” adds Tim. “It will be our priority to make sure everything is back to normal as quickly as possible.”

Severn Trent has already completed some of its £13.5m investment across Leicestershire, and is aiming for this part of the project to be fully complete in May 2019.

The company expects all work in Leicestershire to be complete by the end of 2019.

“We really appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as our investment into improving the water pipes continues in Wigston, and across Leicestershire,” continues Tim. “When we’ve fully finished the project, the area will benefit from miles of new water pipes that will serve the communities for years to come.”
