Temporary traffic signals will be in use on Cody Road from Monday 30 November 2020 for about three weeks.

We’ll be working through the remaining roads using appropriate signage and traffic management as required.

some streets as the work progresses. We would be very grateful if affected areas could be kept clear of vehicles between 8am and 5pm, as this will minimise disruption for all residents and businesses.

Will this impact my water supply?

There will be occasions when there will be an impact on your water supply. These interruptions will be kept to a minimum and if we will provide at least 48 hours notice with details of how your supply will be interrupted. There may also be occasions when we need to shut off the supply for up to fifteen minutes, we will advise affected customers of these on the day of the interruption.

COVID-19 guidance

Our colleagues follow the necessary Government hygiene measures and we would be grateful if you would maintain the two-metre social distance rule if you are passing our workers, or if you need to talk to them.
