Reducing the risk of sewer flooding in Todmorden
Yorkshire Water are about to carry out a project to reduce the risk of sewer flooding to local homes in Todmorden.
On Monday 23 March engineering specialists, Mott MacDonald Bentley, will start work on behalf of the company to replace a section of sewer under Burnley Road. The team will be working between 160 Burnley Road and Todmorden High School.
In order to protect the safety of the on-site team and road users, two-way traffic lights will be in place for the duration of the work, which will take around three weeks to complete.
In order to reduce disruption, the traffic lights will be manned at peak times. The pedestrian crossing for Todmorden School will remain unaffected by the work.
Anna Murphy, Project Manager for Yorkshire Water, comments “We understand that this work will be disruptive to local residents and road users at times but we want to assure customers that we'll do everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum and complete the work as quickly as possible. We hope residents will bear with us as it’s really important that we reduce the risk of sewer flooding to local properties”.
