Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water has completed their £8 million (€9.3 million) wastewater upgrade in the north of Cardiff.
This investment work will help increase the sewer network capacity and improve the quality of the water released back into the environment.
The work, which got underway in June 2020, involved replacing, cleaning and relining sections of the wastewater pipe between Hailey Park and Tongwynlais. The company replaced and relined more than 800 meters of sewer pipes and cleaned 733 meters of pipe. A total of 670 tonnes of debris was removed during the work – that’s about four times as heavy as a house.
Welsh Water’s Project Manager, Andrew Davies, said: "We’re pleased to announce that our investment work between Hailey Park and Tongwynlais is now complete. This investment reflects our commitment to reinvest profits directly for the benefit of our customers and the communities that we service, helping to ensure we provide a first-class wastewater service and protect our precious environment.
“We understand that our work may have caused some inconvenience at times, so we really do appreciate the patience and understanding shown to us by local residents and would like to thank them for bearing with us while we completed our work."
