Water mains replacement work in BD2 & BD3
The final phase of a project to replace the water pipes that run under Bolton Road, Kings Road and Queens Road in Bradford will start on Saturday 27 May.
This £600,000 investment saw 2km of new pipe laid and will increase the reliability of customers’ water supplies and reduce the risk of bursts in Bradford.
Our contract partners, Morrison Utility Services (MUS), need to return to make a final connection for these large new water pipes and will start on Saturday 27 May.
MUS will be working at the A6177 Queens Road and Kings Road junction for around a week. In order to protect the safety of the on-site team and road users, there will be some lane closures.
There will be a lane closure in Queens Road and a lane closure in Kings Road near to the junction. Signed local diversion routes will be in place.
Normal working hours will be Monday to Sunday 7.30am to 5.30pm but the lane closures will be in place 24/7.
Yorkshire Water Project Manager, David Standish, said “We understand this is a very busy road which is why we’re returning to make this connection during school holidays. We'll also work at the weekends so we can complete the connection as quickly as possible.
“Please be assured we'll do everything we can to keep noise and disruption to a minimum. We apologise for any traffic delays.”
It’s unlikely that MUS or Yorkshire Water employees will need access to properties and residents and business owners are being asked to be on their guard against bogus callers while the team is working in the area.
Colleagues from both companies carry identity cards which can be checked by telephoning 0800 1 38 78 78 and they won't mind waiting while their details are verified.
