Penketh drain improvement works now finished

It has been reported this week that the roadworks on Warrington Road in Penketh, Cheshire, have now been completed.

United Utilities, the largest water company in the UK, has declared that the work to make improvements to the local sewer network has been brought to an end, in advance of the estimated finishing date.

Residents of the civil parish will be pleased to hear this news as the Coronation Drive and Greystone Road closure has now been lifted, when it was previously expected that the work could take another month. The normal bus service timetable has now also been resumed.

Drain engineers were tasked with making sure the sewer system was working as it should and that it would not be prone to flooding in the future.

The project co-ordinator for the utility services provider, Tony Lowles, said:

“We are pleased to confirm that we are in a position to remove the temporary closure on Warrington Road sooner than we thought.

“We realise that the closure has caused some temporary inconvenience to motorists and users of the local bus service – and for that we apologise.

“We would like to thank the local community for their ongoing patience and co-operation whilst work has been ongoing in the area to improve the local sewer network.”
