Wombourne water pipe renewal scheme enters next phase

26th September 2018

The final phase of a £500,000 water pipe renewal project is set to begin in Wombourne next week.

Water and waste company Severn Trent started work in June to replace water pipes in the Whites Wood and Broadway areas as part of proactive work to prevent leaks and bursts from occurring in the future.

With phase one now complete, engineers will begin the project’s next stage on Monday 1 October on Rookery Road - with work then continuing onto Mill Lane, Moises Hall Road, Redcliffe Drive and Sunnyhill Close.

Rookery Road, a key area for the project, will be closed for four weeks to ensure work can be carried out safely by engineers.

Gareth Mead from Severn Trent, said: “We know how important it is to keep water flowing for our customers and for them to have a constant supply. The work in Wombourne over the past four months has been really successful and is now entering its final phase as we work to guard against future bursts and leaks.

“We have kept residents and business owners updated on the scheme’s progress and our engineers are working hard to minimise disruption. Although traffic lights and short road closures will be in place to keep our engineers safe, access to homes and businesses will be maintained throughout this next phase.

“I’d really like to thank everyone once again for their patience as we deliver a much more reliable water network for homes and businesses in Wombourne.”

Mr Mead added that Severn Trent expect the scheme to be completed by early January.
