Nine-month water main repair work set to begin

Have your say

Work is starting on a 
£2.4 million project to renew old water pipes in part of Sheffield.

Severn Trent Water will begin the scheme on Monday, around Gleadless Townend, which will take nine months to complete.

Liz Riley, programme manager, said: “The water pipes in Gleadless Townend have been serving the community since the 1900s, but they’ve grown old and are now prone to bursts.

“Teams of engineers will start work in the north and the south of Gleadless Townend, with the first new pipes laid in Stoneley Crescent, Charnock Dale Road, Jaunty Way and Quarry Vale Road.”

Temporary traffic lights will be in place on affected streets.
