Work under Pinfold Lane and St Margarets Road, Methley

We’re replacing the aging sewer pipes that run under Pinfold Lane and St Margarets Road in Methley in order to reduce the risk of sewer flooding.

Work is progressing well but we've changed the point where we'll connect the new sewer to the existing sewer system from Pinfold Lane to Lower Mickletown. For safety reasons, the Highways Department require us to close Lower Mickletown while we connect up the new sewer. 

From Wednesday 13th September 2017 the road will be closed between the junctions of Pinfold Lane and Talbot Yard. We expect this to be closed for a week and a fully signed diversion will be in place. The existing road closure on Pinfold Lane will remain as planned.
The team will then move to lay a new sewer in St Margaret’s Road which will be closed for around four weeks. The road will be closed to through traffic from the junction with Pinfold Lane to numbers 11/18 St Margaret’s Road during this time.

Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times and buses will follow the diversion route for the closures on Pinfold Lane and Lower Mickletown. If you have any questions about a particular bus route please call MetroLine on 0113 245 7676 between 7am and 10pm. 

We'll do our best to maintain access for residents within the closure areas, however, if you live on the roads we're working on, there may be times when access to your property is affected. If you're going to be affected, we'll contact you separately with details.

Your water and sewerage services will remain unaffected and refuse collections will continue so please put your bins out as normal.

Our normal working hours will continue to be Monday to Friday 7.30am to 5.30pm. We don't need access to properties during this work, so before letting anyone into your home make sure you ask for identification. 

We understand this project is disruptive but please be assured we’ll do everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum and complete the work as quickly as possible. 

Please see the diversion route below.
