Pipe replacement work almost done

WORK to replace 800m of water pipe in Addison Road is nearly finished.

Severn Trent announced it is close to completing the work, which is being carried out after a series of bursts hit water supplies to hundreds of homes in Bilton last month.

So far almost 600m of pipe has been replaced, according to Severn Trent programme manager Jonathan Tait.

"We still have some work to do, but the team is making good progress. For the next three weeks we will be replacing approximately 200m of water pipe on Lawford Road," he said.

"Two-way traffic lights will be in place to allow us to work safely and to keep traffic flowing around the site.

"We had aimed to complete the work by the end of September, however we’ve had to extend as renewing the pipes in Lawford Road proved to be more complex than we first thought.

"Our teams are still working six days per week to get the work finished as soon as possible.

"We would like to thank our customers for their continued patience while we complete this necessary work."
