Workers will permanently replace four manhole covers near the roundabout at the bottom of Richardshaw Lane.
“We will be working on Richardshaw Lane to replace concrete chambers underneath the roundabout, which form part of the sewer network. We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause, but our teams will be working hard to minimise disruption,” a spokesperson for Yorkshire Water told the YEP.
"Part of the work will be the laying of new concrete, which takes time to cure, so there may be times when our teams are not present on site during the 10 day closure.”
Advanced signage is in place locally to warn motorists of the works and Yorkshire Water have been in direct contact with affected residents and local businesses.
“We have worked with the local authority highways teams on the closure, placed signs in the area ahead of the work starting so people who use the route regularly are aware of the closures, and have contacted customers locally to inform them.” Yorkshire Water confirmed.
