Doncaster’s leakiest pipe set to be replaced in £100,000 project

We are about to start a £100,000 project to replace Doncaster’s leakiest water pipe.

The four inch wide water main along Silver Street, Doncaster, has burst over six times in the last five years and so is being replaced to ensure residents and businesses drinking water quality is maintained.

From Monday 16 October, our contract partner, Morrison Utility Services (MUS), will start work to replace around 200 metres of clean water pipe running under Silver Street and expect to complete the scheme by the end of November.

Communications Advisor, John Bond said: “This work is essential to ensure we can continue to supply the best possible water to residents and businesses along Silver Street. We’re aware that work of this nature can be disruptive and would like to assure customers that we’ll do everything we can to minimise this as much as possible. Local businesses will remain open as usual and we’d urge customers to continue to support them during this time.”

For safety reason, Silver Street will be closed to vehicles for the duration of the project between the junctions of High Street and Market Road, but access for pedestrians will be kept open at all times. 

Access will also be maintained for the emergency services, residents vehicles living within the closure, and for deliveries to businesses along Silver Street. 

The closure will be in place until the end of November, during which time a fully signed diversion will be in place that goes along Hall Gate, Princes Street and East Laithe Gate.
