Update from @HfdsStreets
Welsh Water works on Three Elms Road, Hereford|
Welsh Water has informed Herefordshire Council that there is a water leak on their newly installed mains pipe situated under Three Elms Road in Hereford. The company is writing to local residents and businesses to inform them of the leak and planned work to repair it. This work will commence on Saturday November 24 and be complete by Friday November 30 at the latest. Temporary two-way traffic lights will be in operation between 8am and 4pm each day.
Clive Hall, Acting Assistant Director for Highways and Transport at Herefordshire Council said:
 “Local residents and businesses were delighted when Welsh Water works on Three Elms Road were completed and we had delivered a new road surface. We are extremely disappointed to learn of Welsh Water’s need to return to the site. If Herefordshire Council had known that work had not been completed to the required standard when Welsh Water withdrew from the site we would have delayed resurfacing work.
 
“We are insisting that work is completed by Friday November 30 at the latest. Further, Welsh Water will have to completely resurface the entire width of road where new work takes place and for some distance either side, not just patch where they dig. We will inspect the resurfacing after they are done to ensure that the quality of the road is of the same high standard recently delivered by Balfour Beatty Living Places.
 
“It is hugely regrettable that local businesses and residents are going to be disrupted again so soon.”
 
Welsh Water are informing residents that the leak is situated near the junction of Bakers Lane and Three Elms Road, by The Range store.
