Work will be underway from May to September in Tuckers Road to install a new water main and sub-mains, as the existing pipework has reached the end of its useful life. If you’re moving through the area keep an eye out for changed conditions, as the road will be one-way much of the time, and there will be some closures. See this works notice for more information.
