Increased resilience in Horsforth’s water supply

Local residents in Horsforth will soon be benefiting from a more resilient water supply as we are due to replace almost three hundred and fifty metres of new water pipes.

Our contractors, Morrison Utility Services, will be replacing the pipes under West End Lane between the junctions of Lee Lane West to near the junction with West Pasture Close. The work will start week commencing 11th September 2017 and it will take approximately four weeks to replace the old pipe that was prone to bursting but once the work is completed residents will be benefiting from an improved service. 

To make sure the colleagues who are working on the site remain safe, the road will need to be closed during the works however access will be made available for residents. A fully signed diversion will be in place to keep the traffic flowing in the area. 

Emily Brady from Yorkshire Water said: “Making sure all our customers receive excellent service from us is very important and this new water pipe will be more resilient than before. 

“We know this work may be disruptive but I hope everyone will understand why it is important for us to do. We’re working hard to keep any disruption to a minimum and we’d like to thank everyone in advance for their patience.” 

Customers with any queries about the scheme can call our Customer Service Team on 0344 9020227 (Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm).
