Replacing water pipe in Pocklington

We will be carrying out two phases of work to replace Pocklington's most burst prone water pipes as part of our network upgrade activity.

Throughout both phases of work, local businesses will remain open as usual and the company is urging customers to continue supporting them during the scheme.

We would like to assure residents and motorists that we’ll minimise disruption as much as possible. 

First phase - 13 November, Burnby Lane

The scheme will see specialists Morrison Utility Services (MUS) replace a 560 metre section of water main along Burnby Lane during two phases of activity. 

The existing six inch pipe has burst 27 times in the last five years, leaving some customers without water and causing some water discolouration issues.

Between Monday 13 November up to 22 December,  temporary traffic lights installed on Burnby Lane from the junction with Derek Vivian Close to Wold Road. The lights will be removed in advance of the Christmas holidays to reduce disruption to local customers.

Second phase - 10 January, Burnby Lane 

A second phase of work will also be carried out in the New Year. This will involve work restarting on Burnby Lane from the junction with New Street and Percy Road to Derek Vivian Close from Wednesday 10 January. As a consequence, Burnby Lane will be closed to through traffic for around four weeks, during which time a localised diversion route will be in place along Wold Road. However, access for customers within the closure, pedestrians and emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.
