New Water Main

26th February 2019

Please see attached construction drawing for the water mains replacement we are planning to undertake on Church Road, Sparkford.


The key points on this scheme would be the following –


The start date would be 01 April 2019 lasting a duration of 10 weeks (Approximately.)

There will be a road closure on Church road commencing from 15 April – 17 May. This is due to we are relocating the main in to the road to ensure it is easily accessible without having to go in to residents lands in the future.

There will also be a temporary speed restriction enforced on Old London road whilst we undertake the final stage of work from 28 May – 31 May. The speed limit will be lowered from 60MPH to 30MPH and there shall also be two-way traffic lights being used in order to maintain optimal safety for our workers.

There will be footpath closure within the field sections of work.

The public right of way at the southern part of Church road (By St Mary’s Church) shall be shut from 15 April for 3 weeks.
The public right of way at the northern part of Church road where the main is diverted away from the back gardens of the properties shall be closed from 13 May for 4 weeks.
There shall also be a footpath closure up by Old London road from 08 April for 3 weeks.
