Waddensbrook Lane closed until July

Severn Trent Road Works close Waddensbrook Lane until the summer

There has been some confusion locally over the work  currently ongoing along Waddensbrook Lane. Sever Trent Water have closed the road as part of their works programme to replace pipes across the area.

Signs at the Fibbersley end of the road state that it was due to be closed for 3 weeks from 16th Feburary 2015, but still today the road is closed with work obviously still taking place.



We’ve contacted Severn Trent via twitter and they inform us that there are 3 lots of work being undertaken on that stretch of road with 2 due to be completed on 7th April and the third by 1st July.

Somebody needs bringing to book over this as it’s causing traffic chaos around the diversion route. I realise they have work to do but surely it could have been better planned and finished a damn site quicker. The roads are supposed to be closed 24 hours and yet they are only working half a working day on actually doing whatever it is they are doing. Very poor

They had closed off teasel drive today, which was part of the diversion. Don’t know where we are supposed to go as I was diverted back onto waddens brook!!! Eh??


My name is Steve and I work for Amey who are working on behalf of Severn Trent Water in your area. Unfortunately, the work to replace the water main on Waddens Brook Lane is taking us a little longer than we thought it would as we have found undetected underground electric cables. We now hope to finish Waddensbrook by middle of next week.

Once Waddensbrook is finished, work will then progress onto Broad lane South straight after Easter with the use of a road closure for about 3 – 4 weeks. 

I’m sorry for the delays, and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we carry out this important work.

We have a FREE text alert service that you can sign up to, this provides weekly progress updates and can also keep you informed on the move.

This week we are pleased to announce that we will have completed all the new pipework and reinstatements on Silverton Way by the end of the weekend, by Tuesday / Wednesday next week we will have the final connection made on Waddens Brook Lane and this will all be reinstated and site cleared and road closure lifted.

Update 2
Next week we will be starting on Broad Lane South from 158 to 176 in a cul de sac off the main road near to The Public House with the use of signing and guarding only. Works will then commence on Broad Lane South with the use of a road closure from middle of next week between the Canal Bridge and Stubby Lane junction for approx 3 – 4 weeks.
We apologise for any disruption or inconvenience we have caused during our essential works and thank you for your continued support and understanding of our works.
