The works will now not include the replacement of the last 200m of mains pipes from Chatsworth Way to Robson Road. Live waste water and other pipes have been found in close proximity to the water main, and so it is too difficult to replace the mains pipe. The implications for our area of this pipework not being replaced during the current works are unknown.
