Welsh Water to invest in Pembridge wastewater network

Posted: Friday 8th February 2013

Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water is planning to invest over half a million pounds to improve the wastewater network and deliver environmental benefits to the village of Pembridge near Leominster.

This scheme involves upgrading the wastewater network on Bridge Street between the junctions of Parsons Walk and Curl View, increasing the operating capacity of the system during very wet weather.

Work is planned to start on 21 January and is estimated to take nine weeks to complete. We will be using temporary traffic lights to control the flow of traffic for the majority of the scheme but to carry out the work safely and quickly we will need to close Bridge Street for three weeks between 11 February and 1 March. Diversionary routes will be clearly signposted and access for residents will be maintained.

We are putting the plans for this work on show on Thursday 10 January at Pembridge Primary School, Bearwood Lane, HR6 9EA between 3.30pm and 7.00pm. Members of the public are invited to drop in and see for themselves what is planned and the project team will be on hand to answer questions.

Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water’s capital delivery manager Martin Kilroy said, “We are committed to minimising the impact our operations have on the environment and this investment is important in ensuring that our system is able to cope during poor weather conditions and reduces the risk of it becoming overloaded.

“Whilst we are working there will be no impact on the wastewater service to local people, and we will try to get the job completed as quickly as possible. We know that our work can cause inconvenience, but it is essential work that will help benefit the area for years to come.
