Planned water mains renewal in the Penn Grove Road and surrounding areas of Hereford, HR1 1

Start: 01 Mar 08:00End: 19 Dec 17:30

The time has come for us to replace the water pipes in the Penn Grove Road and surrounding areas of Hereford.  We’re doing this to make sure that your water stays clean and safe for decades to come. 

We need to replace around 4.5 kilometres of water pipes.

We need to replace the water pipes on the following roads:



  • Penn Grove Road

  • Barr’s Court Road

Lingen Avenue

Frank Owen Court

Moreland Avenue

Bryngwyn Close

Bryngwyn Court

Stallard Court

Bulmer Avenue

Geldof Grove

Esmond Road

Railway View

Richard Weaver Court

Hopton Road

Aylestone Hill

Admirals Close

Aylestone Court Mews

Geoffrey Avenue   

Link Road

We will have two separate teams in place to help us carry out the work as quickly as possible. 

Team one will be starting work on Penn Grove Road at the junction with College Road. 

Team two will start work on Barrs Court Road, opposite the Cooperative store.

The work will begin in the first week of March and will take around nine months to complete.

We’ve worked hard with Herefordshire Highways Department to minimise the disruption but for safety reasons, we will need to close the following roads while we are working on them:

Esmond Road, Horan Road, Link Road, Lingen Avenue, Moreland Avenue, Geoffrey Avenue, Bulmer Avenue and Frank Owen Court. We will write to customers in these streets again nearer to the time of closure with more information and signage will be put up in advance. 

We kindly ask residents not to park within our working areas as this will cause long delays to the work and we want to get it done as quickly as possible.

We will need to use two-way traffic lights when we carry out work on Barrs Court Road and Aylestone Hill and we will use give and take traffic management methods whilst we carry out work on any other roads.  We may need to carry out some work during the night on Aylestone Hill to minimise disruption to traffic when we get to the busiest section near the roundabout.

The work near Barrs Court School on Barrs Court Road will be carried out during the Easter break from 28th March to 10th April to minimise disruption to school traffic.

Your water supply may be affected for a very short time while we connect your supply to the new pipe but we will give you plenty of notice when we need to do this.

Want to know more?

You’d be welcome to join us at our information event, where we will explain what we’re doing in more detail.  If you’re worried about anything in particular, come and talk to us.

This event will be held on 17th February between 2.30pm and 7pm in the hall at Barrs Court School and College, Barrs Court Road, Hereford, HR1 1EQ.

We know that our work can be inconvenient in the short-term.  But once we’re finished, the improvements will benefit the whole community. 


This scheme will be carried out by our contract partners, Eiran Civil Engineering Ltd.  Normal working hours will be 8am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
