A section of Pasture Road will be closed for the next three months whilst a section of sewer is relined and a new manhole chamber built as part of a wider scheme to reduce the risk of sewer flooding in Goole.
The first stage of work is now complete and contractor’s have moved on to work on the junction with Churchill Walk to build a manhole chamber. Pedestrian access will be maintained for all residents within the closure and vehicle access will be maintained for residents living on Hilda Street, Churchill Walk and Attlee Drive, but Pasture Road will be fully closed at the Elsie Street junction to through traffic.
Yorkshire Water spokesperson, John Bond, said: “The work in Pasture Road and surrounding streets is essential to try and ensure that sewer flooding does not happen again in the area. We’re hopeful that people understand that this short-term disruption will bring about significant long term improvements and would ask that people continue to use local businesses whilst we’re onsite.”
“As part of reducing the risk of sewer flooding in Goole, since last summer we have been working in and around the Attlee Drive area to protect 30 properties. A new storage tank is also currently under construction capable of holding 2,500 cubic meters of storm water in times of heavy rainfall, the equivalent to an Olympic sized swimming pool.”
