Wakefield Road set to re-open on Monday

We're aiming to fully re-open Wakefield Road on Monday 3rd April following completion of repairs to the surface caused by a burst water pipe. 

The area of Wakefield Road affected is near Ravensknowle Park in Moldgreen. 

Damage to the road surface was caused by a burst water pipe which our technicians have already resolved. 

We are working closely with the Kirklees Highways to undertake resurfacing of the damaged road before it can be fully re-opened on Monday. Currently, two of the inbound lanes are closed causing traffic delays. 

Katie Earp, Streetworks Liaison Officer at Yorkshire Water, said: "We’d like to apologise for the traffic disruption this burst water pipe has caused. Our technicians have been working very hard with Kirklees Highways to repair the substantial damage caused to road surface.”

The burst water pipe occurred on Thursday morning, with all water supply issues quickly fixed. 

Further areas of damage have shown up on the outbound carriageways which we have agreed with Kirklees Highways to repair at a later date to ease traffic concerns.
