Severn Trent to start improvement works in Diddlebury near Ludlow
9:58am Friday 28th February 2014 in News
SEVERN Trent is to begin improvement works on its water pipes serving customers in Diddlebury.
The water pipes serving its customers in the south Shropshire village, near Craven Arms, need to be replaced.
Severn Trent Water’s Dave Kiernan said: “Water pipes serving our customers have now grown old and are prone to bursts. By installing new water pipes we hope to prevent this from happening and we’ll be starting work on Monday (March 3).
“While we carry out this essential work we’ll do our best to keep disruption to a minimum. “We’re working together with Shropshire County Council and Diddlebury Parish Council as part of our plans.
“To allow us to replace the pipes we’ll need to carry out work, the majority of which will be done on the road to Craven Arms, the B4368.
“This will primarily be carried out with traffic lights in place and the road will be closed during the day in the May half-term holidays.
“We’re looking forward to working with the local community and appreciate their patience and understanding. We won’t be working for long, but our improvements will.”
