A £350,000 investment will see a new water main installed in Littleport to reduce the risk of future bursts and low water pressure in the area.

The work by Anglian Water, set to start on Monday November 4, will see the water main replaced with a new section of pipe, helping to ease future interruptions to supply.

The installation will see 1.5km of pipe laid in the area, and is expected to last for 13 weeks, being completed by the end of February 2020.

In order to allow teams to work safely, road closures will be in place along Ten Mile Bank at different stages throughout the work.

David Hartley, Anglian Water spokesperson, said: "We're pleased that this vital repair work will help to improve the existing water network in the area, ensuring a more resilient supply for the future."

Teams will be onsite from 7.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, with occasional weekend work to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.
