Ageing UK pipes to be replaced as part of €4.4 million project

Water and waste company Severn Trent is to continue its £4million (€4.4 million) investment in South Leicestershire, UK.
The company is currently replacing ageing water pipes across Swinford, with the next phase of work set to finish in early March next year.
A company spokesman said: “This is a really important project for the area, as this work is vital in making sure customers will have a reliable water supply for years to come, as newer pipes are less likely to burst and cause problems.
“We want everyone to have water when they need it, so by making sure our network is in the best possible condition, we’re helping to prevent any problems.”
Severn Trent working partners Amey, will be carrying out the work on behalf of the company that will see the work starting on Rugby Road and working towards Swinford village, via Kilworth Road.
The team will then continue into the village along High Street before continuing for a short stretch on Rugby Road as far as Simons Close.
“We’re really sorry for any disruption this may cause, but it’s vital our teams and road users are kept safe as we work,” the spokesman added. “It will always be our priority to make sure everything is back to normal as quickly as possible. We really appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as our work improving the water pipes in Leicestershire progresses. When we’ve fully finished the project, the area will benefit from miles of new water pipes that will serve the communities for years to come.”
