Einformation: Urgent Works, Sewer collapse on Weetwood Lane

Please see information below, we have received today (26/10/17), Highways Services via Cllr Barry Anderson, and which may be of interest to you.

“I am writing to inform you that 2 way traffic lights will be set up on Weetwood Lane near to the Oxley Hall flats tonight.

Yorkshire Water have been investigating the severe depression in the carriageway at this location and have discovered that the sewer has collapsed underneath this section of road.

The lights have been set up initially to stop vehicles driving over that particular area of carriageway.

This will also allow them to carry out further investigations with a view to carrying out a full sewer repair shortly.

Unfortunately when the full repair begins it is likely that Weetwood Lane will have to be closed for a number of weeks given the limited road space and size and depth of the excavations that will be required.

However, more will become clear once they have carried out their investigations.

I will be sure to keep you all updated once I have more specific info regarding dates etc.

The lights will be manually controlled throughout the am/pm peaks to ensure that the traffic queues are being managed as efficiently as possible.

I have asked that Yorkshire Water carry out a letter drop to inform affected residents and let them know what to expect and who to contact if they have any queries.

Information boards will also be placed on site.

If you have any questions, please let me know.”

Kind Regards
