Anglian Water will start work on Monday 24 September to lay 2.2km of new water pipe in Cleethorpes.

The £700,000 investment into the scheme will reduce burst pipes, low pressure and interruptions to supply for customers in the local area.

The new pipeline will run along Kings Road, from Chichester Road up to and including Anthony’s Bank and will be completed by the end of March 2019.

Work has been scheduled alongside those being carried out by the local authority, Lincolnshire County Council, in order to minimise disruption to local customers and businesses in the area. The pipe is being installed along local verges and through car parks along Kings Road to reduce the need for road closures.

However, to ensure safety of residents, road users, and the work force, a one-week partial road closure will be necessary along Kings Road while the new pipe is connected. Although a date for this is yet to be finalised with the local Highways Team, plans are already in place to ensure alternative bus stops are in place for local commuters.

Regan Harris, Anglian Water spokesperson, said: “We are sorry for any inconvenience these works cause and we will do our best to minimise disruption wherever possible. We would also like to thank our customers for their patience and co-operation while these works are completed.

“This scheme is part of our investment into improving our services for customers in Lincolnshire and we hope people will understand the long term benefits the work will bring.”

Teams will be in operation from 7.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, with occasional weekend work if required. If customers have any queries, please contact the 24-hour customer helpline on 03457 145 145, or visit
