Clean water improvements within Ferry Road, South Cave

From Monday 22nd January, a small section of Ferry Road in South Cave will be closed to allow Yorkshire Water to connect the village to a new water main that was laid last year.

The work is expected to last around four weeks and a signposted traffic diversion route will be put in place around North Cave.

John Bond, communications advisor at Yorkshire Water, said: “In order to carry out this work safely, we need to close a small section of Ferry Road. We understand this is a very busy road but due to the location of the pipe, the only way we can complete this work safely is by closing the road to through traffic. Access will be maintained for residents, pedestrians and emergency services, with a fully signed diversion in place. We’re aware that there are a number of buses that pick up students to take them to nearby schools and so we’ve liaised with the schools and bus companies to ensure these will continue as normal, using the diversion.”

To try and complete the work as quickly as possible Yorkshire Water will also be working weekends whenever possible and weekday working hours will be between 8am to 5pm.
