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. 

From Wednesday 10 January, work will start on Burnby Lane from the junction with New Street and Percy Road to Derek Vivian Close. Due to the width of the road and the location of the pipe, we’ll need to close Burnby Lane to through traffic for around four weeks.

In addition to this, from Wednesday 10 January, two-way traffic lights will be in place at the junction of Percy Road, New Street and Burnby Lane for two weeks. During this time, garages behind 33 to 53 Percy Road will have to be accessed via Union Street.

Please be assured that access for customers within the closure, pedestrians and emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times. We’ve liaised closely with the local highways department to provide a diversion route, which can be seen in green on the map below.

Throughout the scheme local businesses will remain open as usual and we ask that you please continue to support them during this time. 

Whilst carrying out the work there may be times when we’ll need to interrupt water supply. Before any interruptions, all properties that will be affected will be notified.

Before letting anyone into your home, please make sure you ask for identification and beware of bogus callers. 

Please be assured we'll do everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum and complete the work as quickly as possible.
