WORK is under way on a flood alleviation scheme in Chester.
Welsh Water started work on Monday on an investment scheme to increase capacity on the wastewater network in the Brook Lane area.
The essential work is expected to take 15 weeks to complete and will alleviate the risk of internal flooding to identified properties on Brook Lane.
To ensure the safety of road users, pedestrians and workforce, the firm will close the alleyway to the rear of numbers 4- 34 Newry Park in short sections while the work is ongoing.
Sara Brady, communications manager at Welsh Water, said: “We realise the distress internal wastewater flooding can cause and are committed to tackling it. Our investment project in Chester reflects our goal to provide customers with a first class service. We appreciate the inconvenience work such as this may cause but these measures are necessary to ensure the work is carried out safely. We will keep people fully informed of our plans and would ask the local community to bear with us during these essential works.”
Welsh Water has liaised with relevant bodies, including Cheshire West and Chester Council.
