Upgrading our water pipes in Southport

Our next phase of work is to install a new water pipe from Scarth Hill Water Tower to Dark Lane Water Treatment Works.

How this may affect you:

Week commencing 19 September 2016 we'll be setting up our first working area on Dark Lane.  From there we will have a few road closures as we move along the route.  These are detailed below:

  • from 23 September 2016 a section of road on Dark Lane will be closed close to Orry's Mount for around four weeks with traffic flow being maintained by temporary two-way traffic lights;
  • week commencing 10 October 2016 we'll be crossing Crosshall Brow.   We will be closing one lane whilst we carry out this section of work, with two-way traffic controlled by temporary traffic lights.  We expect this work to take around a week.
  • week commencing 17 October 2016 we will close a section of Vicarage Lane just past it's junction with Wellfield Lane.  We expect this work to take around one week;
  • week commencing 24 October 2016 we will close a section of Whiteleys Lane at its junction with Wellfield Lane.  We expect this work to take around one week;
  • week commencing 31 October 2016 we will close the section of road on Scarth Hill Lane up to its junction with Whiteleys Lane for around eight weeks.
