Operations to install a new water main will begin in Scunthorpe, England later this month in a move to satisfy increasing demand.
Anglian Water has made a £5.4 million (US$6.5 million) investment in the project which will result in more than 13 km of new pipe laid in the area, much of which completed using underground drilling.
Anglian Water Spokesperson David Hartley said the interruptions to traffic and pedestrians during the works would be kept to a minimum wherever possible.
“Operating in one of the fastest growing areas in the UK, this scheme will help to support future growth, ensuring we can maintain current water pressure to the area as the population grows in the Lincolnshire Lakes,” he said.
“This development is a significant one within the area of Scunthorpe and this work is just another example of our commitment to making sure that our network is fit to meet the demands of a growing population.”
Exact dates for work in certain locations are still subject to change, but pipe will be laid on the A18, Holme Lane, Messingham Road, Northfield Road, Scotter Road, Burringham Road and Brumby Common Lane.
Work is due to be completed in July 2020.
