20 weeks of water pipe replacement work set to begin in Higher Shotton
Welsh Water will start work today Monday, April 10 on replacing drinking water pipes around the Higher Shotton area.
The work is scheduled to last around 20 weeks with completion expected at the end of August.
Old pipes around Norman Street, Grosvenor Road, Tudor Close, Farmfield Close and The Meadows are set to be replaced with new ones.
Welsh Water says they have been working closely with Flintshire County Council on plans to minimise disruption in the area and allow for the work to be carried out safely.
Some roads in the area are expected to be closed off to traffic at times, temporary traffic lights may also be in operation in the area, access for residents will be maintained.
Welsh Water also say that when replacement pipe work is carried out water supplies may appear discoloured for a time being, this is normal and can be cleared by running the kitchen tap.
The work is part of a multi-million-pound project by the water company which has seen extensive work in Sandycroft, Hawarden and Connah’s Quay. Spotted something? Got a story? Send a Facebook Message | A direct message on Twitter | Email: News@Deeside.com
