Improvements at Tankersley Waste Water Treatment Works
I am writing to let you know about some upcoming improvement works which will begin in the new year at Tankersley Waste Water Treatment Works. The work, which will see over £4m invested in the site, will improve the quality of the treatment on site, helping to ensure we meet our obligations to protect the environment. The work will be carried out by our contract partners AGT and is due to begin on 16 January 2017. The whole project will take around 12 months to complete.
Whilst the work is being carried out you may notice additional traffic accessing the site. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. In order to reduce disruption we are looking to limit construction traffic to between 9.30am and 2.30pm, however there may be occasions when we need to access the site outside of these times.
Access to the site will be via Lidgett Lane and past Knoll Cottages. As the junction of the access road and Lidgett Lane has limited visibility we have agreed with the Council’s highways department that temporary three way traffic lights will be installed to ensure the safety of people using the road. We expect that this traffic management will need to be in place for around 8 months of the project.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused whilst we carry out this essential improvement work. If you have any queries regarding this work please contact our Customer Service Team on 0344 848 1099 (Monday to Thursday 8am to 5.30pm and 8am to 5pm on Friday). Please note that over the Christmas and New Year period our phone line will be closed from 12.30pm on Friday 23 December until 8am on Tuesday 3 January. If you need to speak to someone urgently please call our Contact Centre on 0345 1 24 24 24, this is available 24 hours a day for emergencies.
