2017 Duck Race a huge success!


Easter Monday's Duck Race saw a massive turnout in Bradford on Avon; so much so, that we sold out of ducks!


Westbury Gardens, the banks of the river and the two bridges marking the start and finish lines, were packed with hopeful duck sponsors as Councillors poured nearly 800 rubber ducks into the river to the cheers of the crowd.

As you are probably aware, we are improving the water network in the area, and are currently replacing water mains between Belcombe Road and Newtown, Bradford-on-Avon.

Unfortunately, due to complications associated with our ongoing excavations and need to work carefully in order to avoid damage to structures and other underground utilities, this necessary work has taken longer than expected.

Water supply improvement work in Newtown, Bradford-on-Avon — Progress Update

Wessex Water
Claverton Down Bath BA2 7WW Telephone 01225 526000 www.wessexwater.co.uk

3 January 2017

Dear Customer,

Water supply improvement work in Newtown, Bradford-on-Avon — Progress Update

As you are probably aware, we are currently improving the water network in the area, and are currently replacing water mains between Belcombe Road and Newtown, Bradford-on-Avon.
Unfortunately, due to the discovery of an old drainage culvert, not shown on historical Council records and the need to excavate carefully due to the close proximities of listed properties, our current road closure needs to be extended to complete all necessary work safely.
We will however, be replacing a section of this culvert with a new piped equivalent on behalf of Wiltshire Council, to help reduce the risk of future disruption.

How will the work affect you?

This letter is notification that our current road closure which is in place between Sandy Leaze and the junction with Wine Street, will now remain in place until 10 February 2017.
Similar to existing circumstances, this road closure will restrict access to through traffic only. Safe access to properties located within the extent of this road closure will be maintained at all times, although short delays may be experienced while access is made safe. Emergency access will be maintained at all times, together with refuse collection access to help minimise disruption.
The alternative diversion route will continue to be clearly signposted and, unless access to properties within the extent of each closure is required, these diversion routes must be used at all times.

There may be some noise disruption (Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm) while we complete the work as quickly as possible.

What should you do?

You don't need to do anything. You can continue to use your water supply as normal unless we tell you otherwise.

Anything else you need to know?

If you have any questions please call our customer services team on 0345 600 4 600 (Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm, emergencies at other times). Alternatively, there's plenty of advice online including frequently asked questions and help from our web chat team.

We apologise for any further inconvenience caused by our essential work,

Yours faithfully

Paul Hobbs
