Market Harborough upgrade moves to the next phase
A £2 million scheme to upgrade five km of new water pipes in Market Harborough is continuing to progress, as Severn Trent engineers move onto the next phase of the project.
Essential work to replace ageing water pipes with brand new ones will begin on Kettering Road, opposite Ashley Way this week.
Lisa Orme from Severn Trent said: “We’ve made excellent progress on this project since it began back in April. We’re carrying out this essential work – to replace five km of ageing water pipes with brand new ones - to reduce the number of leaks and bursts in the area and I’ve been delighted with how it’s all coming together.”
