SEVERN Trent Water has provided an update on the works being done in the Stroud town centre.
These works are part of Severn Trent’s £25 million waste network upgrades in Stroud.
Stroud Town Council shared a letter it received from Severn Trent with updates of the works taking place just outside the town centre.
“Our team are continuing to work closely with all utility companies about the ongoing diversion works in Nelson Street, Middle Street and Acre Street,” read the letter.
“We are providing an estimated timetable for the duration of these works.”
BT diversion work September 19 2022 – October 7 2022
Electric diversion work October 10 2022 – October 21 2022
Severn Trent work November 22 2022 – May 2023
“So that we can keep you and our teams safe, we will need to implement a rolling road closure in each street whilst we are working, which will mean that there will be restricted parking during this time,” the letter continues.
“Pedestrian access to the homes and businesses will be maintained at all times, however due to the narrowness of the public footpath, please take care when walking near to our works, cyclists please dismount or use the designated diversion route.
“We are really sorry about any nuisance we cause during this essential work.
“On days when your bin is due to be collected, please can we ask that you take them to the nearest end of our road closure to ensure that they do not get missed.”
Severn Trent says it recognises the inconveniences which some of these works may bring.
“We would like to thank our customers in Stroud in advance for their patience whilst we carry out this major project that will benefit the area for years to come,” said Janine Billington, Severn Trent community officer.
“Although this work is really important, we know it can be inconvenient.
“Any road closures, temporary traffic lights and parking restrictions in place to keep customers and our teams safe, and will allow us to complete the work as quickly as possible.”
