Yorkshire Water is nearing completion of its million pound scheme in Toller Lane to Bradford city centre

From today (September 13th) Morrison Utility Services (MUS), who are completing the work on Yorkshire Water’s behalf, will start some roadworks in Westgate near to the City Road roundabout which, for safety reasons will need temporary three-way traffic lights. This work is expected to take approximately five days to complete.

From 9.30am on Monday 17th September, MUS will commence roadworks in Toller Lane at its junction with Carlisle Road, Whetley Lane and Whetley Hill which will require three-way temporary traffic lights. These lights will be in operation 24 hours a day and will be operator controlled between 7am and 7pm to help reduce traffic disruption. It is expected this will take approximately 2 weeks to complete. This final piece of work will be to start the chlorination process and connect the pipe to the water network.

To complete the work as quickly as possible the team will be working seven days a week between 8am and 6pm.

Yorkshire Water communications advisor Mark Allsop said: “We’d like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding whilst these essential works have been taking place. We’ve consulted with Bradford Highways Department throughout this scheme to try and minimise disruption as much as possible. We do appreciate that the roadworks will have been inconvenient for both travellers and local customers. We’ll continue to do everything we can to minimise disruption in this final phase.”
