Severn Trent to carry out repairs on Nottingham sewer

Monday 31st July

Severn Trent is to begin essential repairs on a collapsed sewer pipe beneath Clumber Street in Nottingham next month.

Engineers will be working round the clock to fix the sewer pipe and reduce the risk of flooding in the area.

Roads and pedestrian walk ways will be kept open at all times and no road closures will be needed. To keep traffic and pedestrians moving safely temporary traffic signals will be used and manned by engineers at all times.

Chris Keys, from Severn Trent, explains: “We’ve become aware of a sewer pipe that’s collapsed beneath Clumber Street so we need to dig down and put it right. This is a tricky repair and our engineers will need to spend several weeks digging out the pipe and installing the new one.

“To make sure they can work safely, an area of Clumber Street and Parliament Street will be cordoned off and we’d like to apologise for any disruption this causes.”

Work is due to begin on Sunday 6 August and should be complete within eight weeks.  Lane restrictions will be in place along the inbound side of Lower Parliament Street and it’s possible this may have an impact on traffic.

Chris added: “We’re aiming to minimise any disruption and keep access open for pedestrians at all times. Engineers will be working 24 hours a day to get this job completed as quickly as possible and everything returned to normal.”

During the work the P4 and P5 bus stops on Parliament Street will be closed and services will move to the T7 bus stop on Burton Street. Bus stop W4 on Parliament Street will also be closed but W1 further along the same street will remain open.
