Investigatory work will begin in Southwell next week to allow Severn Trent Water to upgrade the sewers on Halloughton Road.

Planned from Monday 27th to Friday 31st January, they will begin exploratory work before sewer pipes are upgraded.

Around 80 metres of the road will be closed at the Westgate junction, while work to install new sewer pipes will be carried out during the school holidays.

The work will help to protect residents from future problems, eventually allowing new sewers to be laid along the road.

Local Severn Trent Water engineer, Andrew Morley, explains: “Although only a short section of Halloughton Road will be closed, we’d like to ask motorists to use Westgate and Nottingham Road from Monday to Friday next week, if possible. This will help to keep disruption to a minimum.

“It is a narrow road, so it must be closed to allow us to dig down to uncover utilities pipes and test the ground conditions. We can then start work during the school summer holidays to install new sewer pipes, which will help to protect residents from any sewer problems in the future. We’re doing all we can to work together with the local community and we’d like to thank residents in advance for their patience.”
