Harland Way Closure PDF Print E-mail

Essential work begins in Cottingham

on Harland Way

Work to improve the security of Cottingham’s water supply will start next week (24 July).

Yorkshire Water will replace some equipment and create new connections in Harland Way in the area as part of a £1.2 project.

From 24th July temporary traffic lights will be needed as part of Harland Way will be closed from 85 Harland Way upto the Cottingham High School. From 31st July, Harland Way will be closed to through traffic for five weeks from the address above, with only residents able to access the road.

After this the road will revert back to two-way traffic with traffic lights until.

A Diversion is available via Castle Road which will be signposted.

Yorkshire Water’s project manager David Standish said: “We know this closure will be inconvenient for local people and apologise in advance.

“We have arranged to start the work in the school holidays when traffic is normally quieter and hope this will reduce the impact on traffic through the area.
“It’s important we make these changes to the water network so that we can continue to supply high quality drinking water to Cottingham and the surrounding area and we hope local people will bear with us while the work takes place.”

The project is expected to last until December and is part of a £3.8bn investment programme by Yorkshire Water between 2015 and 2020. The company’s network of pipes stretches for 51,500 miles and supplies 1.3bn litres of water to households across the region every day - the equivalent of 8bn cups of tea.

It is highly unlikely that Yorkshire Water's contractors will need to access people's homes as part of the work. And the company warned local residents to be vigilant of unscrupulous people posing as employees. All contractors and employees carry  photographic ID which can be verified as genuine by calling 0800 1 38 78 78. Genuine members of the team won't mind waiting while their credentials are verified.
