Wessex Water are working along the Ryme Road to Replace the water main.

Our last mentioned timescale unfortunately was not used due to Council works on your local bridge during which we were unable to complete our works.

As of Monday 30/04/18 we will be completing our final connections on the Yetminster Crossroads and the entrance to Uplands. These are scheduled for two weeks of work including re-instatement.

These works do not require us to work under a road closure so will not restrict Ryme Road access.

We also have some re-instatement (Tar-Mac) works to complete in Ryme, this involves the removal of temporary tar mac used to re-open Ryme road and replacement with permanent. Again this will involve one days works and no road closure.

Please be aware that Wessex Water are advised of some other works going on in the Ryme area, these are not theirs.
