Anglian Water scheme begins to renew Stamford sewer network

01 April 2021


Anglian Water’s team of expert engineers are soon set to begin essential work to upgrade almost half a kilometre of sewer pipe in Stamford in order to enhance the resilience of the network, with work starting on 06 April 2021.


The work, which is expected to be completed by the end of May, will see more than 450m of sewer pipe along St Leonard’s Street relined and strengthened using an innovative no-dig technique. 


Abigail Stevens, Project Manager for Anglian Water, said: “Investing in projects like this enables us to enhance capacity and ensure customers can continue to use their taps and flush their toilets without a second thought.


“We have designed a solution which will allow us to refurbish sections of the pipe without having to dig up and replace the whole thing, helping us to reduce the amount of disruption that it would normally cause.”


To ensure the safety of both staff and local road users, a road closure will be in place on St Leonard’s Street. However, a diversion route and alteration to the one-way system in the area will be in place, with traffic approaching St Leonard’s Street diverted via St George’s Street and St Paul’s Street.


Anglian Water has assured teams will be following Public Health England advice on social distancing while at work and will be limiting direct contact with customers unless it’s an emergency.
