Severn Trent to carry out work to replace water pipes in Wolverhampton
Monday 9th October
Severn Trent is to carry out work to improve the water supply in Willenhall near Wolverhampton during the October half-term holidays as part of a £2m scheme.
The company completed work in Sandbeds Road during the summer holidays and will now be finishing the project by replacing a short section of its network under Charles Street with brand new pipes.
Dave Kiernan, from Severn Trent, explains: “We’ve been installing new pipes in this area of Willenhall to make sure that customers have great quality water whenever they need it.“We know there’s nothing worse than having an interruption to your water supply and that’s why we took the decision to make a major investment by replacing the pipes.
“This final stage of the project will make sure all our customers continue to have reliable access to water for many years to come.”
Work is due to start on Saturday, 21 October and should be complete in under two weeks.
Dave continues: “To allow engineers from our contractor Amey to work safely we’ll have a temporary one-way traffic system in place which will be well signposted to keep traffic moving.
“We’re doing this work largely during the school holidays when we know the roads are a bit quieter, and we’ll be working closely with local residents and businesses to minimise disruption to their daily life.
“We’d like to thank everyone for their patience during the work we completed in the summer and I’m sure they’ll welcome the benefits this final phase will bring.”
