Wirral water pipe work to start

A THREE-MONTH project to replace water pipes in Wirral starts next week.

United Utilities will start work at the junction of Chadwick Street and Hoylake Road, Moreton, on Friday May 29.

The work, which is expected to take up to three months to complete, will progress along Hoylake Road and towards Carr Lane.

Temporary traffic lights will be used along the route.

Brian Jenkins, United Utilities’ Project Engineer, said: “These pipes have burst on occasion in the past few years.

“New pipes will help prevent this from happening again.”
