Investment at Lofthouse
Residents in the Lofthouse area are set to benefit from a £100,000 scheme to improve our sewerage system as we bid to help make surface water sewer flooding a thing of the past.
Our contract partners, Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB), were working earlier this year to replace a damaged section of sewer that runs under Green Lane and Jumbles Lane in Lofthouse, Wakefield.
- During times of heavy rainfall, flooding occurs in this area due to some structural damage on the existing surface water sewer.
- 46metres of damaged pipe has been replaced with new, more robust iron pipework. An additional 109metres of sewer has be cleaned and re-lined in order to reduce the risk of flooding.
