The work by United Utilities has been held up by an emergency electricity repair to some of the shops on Church Street next to where UU needed to work. They were unable to start their work yesterday until approximately 11am as they had to wait for approval to work within the Scottish Power site and Traffic management (which was then changed slightly to suit the UU work). This work is still not complete as the footpath needs paving by Scottish Power. United Utilities have been informed they will be there today to do this work. This will slow United Utilities down today as Scottish Power have a temporary footpath where UU are planning to lay the new main . Until Scottish Power complete their work UU will be restricted on room to work. This should clarify the current situation on Church Street.
While this unforeseen circumstance isn’t ideal, UU has carried out activity on other sections of the work area.
Further updates will be made in due course.
