Road Closure – Bentham Road from 24th October

Works are set to commence on Bentham Road, between Wennington and Low Bentham, on the 24th October 2016 for ten days or upon completion of the works if sooner. The works will require a full road closure to allow site personal and associated large plant machinery to work safely.

This is the final phase of the scheme to repair the landslip that occurred as a result of the unprecedented rainfall and flooding late last year. The works to be undertaken involve a series of ground anchors being installed to secure steel netting, along the area that has been repaired, to prevent any of the large stones from moving and falling on to the carriageway. In addition, a small area adjacent to the main repair will also have the same anchors placed to prevent any further smaller slippages occurring.

Transfer of Private Sewage Pumping Stations to Yorkshire Water

Government legislation means that from 1st October 2016 all eligible
private sewage pumping stations in Yorkshire will automatically transfer
to the ownership and responsibility of Yorkshire Water.

This is good news for customers since it’ll mean that they are no longer
responsible for future maintenance and repair costs associated with the
stations. The pumping stations included in the transfer will be owned by
Yorkshire Water and will be looked after by their experienced team of operators.

Yorkshire Water predicts that there are more than 700 private pumping
stations in their region and they don’t know the location of all of them.

Yorkshire Water are starting a customer campaign this winter asking
people to report their pumping stations to them.

If you have a pumping station please contact Yorkshire Water as soon as possible by calling
0345 124 24 24.
