New water pipe, Otley Road, Harrogate.
We're about to lay a new water pipe along Otley Road, Harrogate to support new housing developments nearby.
Our contract partners, Morrison Utility Services (MUS), will start work on Monday 8 January to lay the new water pipe in Otley Road from the junction with Beckwith Road towards the junction with Beckwith Head Road. This is planned to take around three months to complete. Although the road will remain open, for safety reasons we’ll require temporary traffic lights on Otley Road for the duration of the scheme, which will be manned at peak times in order to reduce traffic disruption. These will move as our work progresses.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Please be assured we'll do everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum and complete the work as quickly as possible. We understand this is a very busy road which is why we have liaised with the local highways department and agreed to work weekends. Our normal working hours will be 8am until 5pm but the traffic lights need to be in place at all times.
As we’re laying an additional clean water pipe, no supply interruptions are expected. Should this change, we’ll contact anyone who will be affected.
MUS colleagues will not need to access inside your property. Always ensure you ask for identification before letting anyone onto your property. If you are ever in doubt, or have any questions, please contact us.
