Yorkshire Water to install new sewer pipe near Doncaster Dome
Yorkshire Water will soon begin work to lay a new sewer close to Doncaster Dome as it improves access and maintenance of the network in the area.
An existing sewer runs under a number of homes restricting access, should the company need to carry out repairs or maintenance in the future.
The project begins on Monday, 26 February and involves laying a new section of pipe from the edge of the car park at the Dome and connecting it into the main sewer in Gliwice Way.
From 5 March, contract partners Barhale and B Jefferey Construction, will be closing one lane in both directions between Elter Drive and Herton Way for a week to create a temporary access for local residents.
The following week, Gliwice Way will be closed for around two months whilst the essential connection work is completed. During the closure, a fully signed diversion will be in place using Lakeside Boulevard and White Rose Way. Buses will follow the diversion route, with pedestrian access not being affected.
The company has liaised closely with the local highways department to ensure that access to Doncaster Dome, Central East Doncaster Leisure Park and Asda will also be maintained at all times.
Yorkshire Water Communications Advisor, John Bond said: “This is essential work which will improve the service in the area and we’d ask that people continue to support local businesses. We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused and will do everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum and complete the work as quickly as possible.”
