Road closure begins amid Anglian Water works

A six-week road closure has been put in place on Scunthorpe’s Brumby Wood Lane, as Anglian Water perform a major upgrade of the town’s water network.

Work began on Monday, and is set to be completed in January 2021, lasting 14 weeks in total.

The road closure will end on November 6 2020.

Traffic management measures will also be in place, with two-way traffic lights on Bristol Road between 14 October – 03 November and on Scotter Road between 14 October – 24 November.

Traffic management dates are subject to change dependant on the progression of works.

The £600,000 development will see 1.2km of pipe laid in order to meet the water needs of the area’s ever-growing population.

A spokesperson for Anglian Water said:

“Through the reinforcement of our pipes, we will be able to pump a higher volume of water into the network, ensuring that our customers’ water supply and pressure is resilient well into the future.

“We’re also really pleased to have been able to reduce the scheme from 20 weeks down to 14 by having two site teams working on Scotter Road/Bristol Road and Brumby Wood Lane at the same time, which will hopefully help reduce the length of the disruption for local residents and road users.”

According to a statement released by Anglian Water, teams will be following Public Health England advice on social distancing while at work.

Direct contact with customers will be limited except for in the case of an emergency.

Motorists are being warned to expect disruption, and to avoid the area where possible for the duration of the works.
