Scheduled roadworks – Abberley – for the improvement of water pipes – Severn Trent


We’re improving your supply of wonderful water…

The water pipes in the area of Abberley, Worcester have served your community well for many years but recently they’ve been showing their age. To ensure supplies are secure for the future we’re going to replace them with some new ones.

When and where is the work taking place?

The work will start on 1 May 2023, and we aim to have it complete by mid-June 2023. We will be working along Rosedale, Abberley, Worcester with work in the verge and on The Common. For our team to work safely and effectively we have agreed with the local authorities to a road closure along The Common. Access to Frontage’s within the closure and emergency access will be maintained. Please see overleaf for closure location and for diversion map.

Please bear with us

We appreciate that it can be a pain to have this work happening near you – but please be assured that we (along with our contract partner Watertight Management) will do everything we can to minimise any disruption. We’ll do our very best to keep to the above dates, but they may change due to circumstances beyond our control.

Will my water supply be affected?

If we plan to interrupt your water supply, we’ll notify you 48 hours in advance with a card stating the date and the earliest start and latest end time of the interruption. During or after the work, there’s a small chance your water may appear discoloured. This is nothing to worry about and will quickly go back to normal.
