Clarborough Water mains replacement scheme by Anglian Water this summer
Anglian Water are planning to carry out improvements to the water network in Clarborough and Welham in order to reduce the number of bursts as the existing water pipes are now coming to the end of their useful life.
This £1million scheme is due to start in July 2017 and will be completed by the end of December. It will affect properties along Whinleys Road, Howbeck Lane, A620 Road and all of Welham.
(See plan below).
In order to minimise disruption, Anglian Water will be using no-dig techniques throughout the project, including Directional Drilling, Slip Lining and Pipebursting, which are less intrusive than the traditional open cut excavation method.
One section of the scheme at Little Gringley; will require a road closure, which will last for one week. The diversion route for through traffic during this period will be via Retford, which will be clearly signposted when the road closure in in place. The exact timing of this is not known yet, but letters will be sent to local residents and diversion signs put in place ahead of the closure.
Anglian Water will write to local residents closer to the start date with further details of this planned work.
