Stuart Andrew MP visits Apperley Lane sewer replacement scheme

We are busy laying a new sewer on Apperley Lane in Rawdon this summer and local MP Stuart Andrew visited the site to understand more about the work and why it is really important for the local community. 

250 metres of new sewer is being laid between the roundabout and Micklefield Lane junction to reduce the risk of sewer flooding. In late 2015 part of the sewer collapsed which caused damage to the road and local disruption, and the new sewer will be the permanent fix to this. The majority of the work is being carried out during the school Summer holidays to reduce disruption. 

After the visit, Stuart Andrew MP said: "I am very encouraged by my recent visit to the Yorkshire Water repair works in Rawdon. I welcome the significant progress that has been made in making the vital repairs Apperley Lane needs. Although these works have inevitably caused disruption, it is great to see the efforts that have been put in place to minimise impact to the local community and keep on track for an early completion date."

More details about the work and the diversion route that is in place can be found on the Rawdon webpage.
