Our water mains cleaning programme of works has been ongoing now for five years and to date, we have achieved 221km of cleaning works to our mains. There are a number of pipe sections that we still need to clean, with a total length of 9.0km. We are starting this work in August 2018 and anticipate completion in the Summer 2019.

Good Afternoon

I thought I would take this opportunity to thank the commuters and some residents of Great Lime Road.

We are currently working adjacent to Kelvin Place by the traffic lights and we are very conscious our work is having an impact on the travelling public.

Kevin and his team are progressing to get the job done even though the weather could have hindered them. They have really motored on and just about caught up so we will be out of your hair in due course.

Thank you all again for your patience and continued understanding during our presence.
