Water mains work to start in Bunwell and Carleton Rode

A project to replace almost two kilometres of water mains at two south Norfolk villages will begin next week.

Anglian Water is investing around �500,000 to replace ageing pipes in Bunwell and Carleton Rode, near Attleborough. The scheme is part of a larger �1.5m project that will see 10km of pipes replaced over the next eight months.

The first stage will begin in Bunwell Street, Bunwell, and Flaxlands Road, Carleton Rode, on Monday.

Bunwell Street will remain open during the replacement, but traffic lights will be in place. The section of pipe being replaced is between Mears Corner and the junction with North Road.

Flaxlands Road will be closed initially from the junctions of Chapel Road and Greenway's Lane and then after this stretch of road is completed it will be closed from Greenways Lane to Scotts Corner.

Antony Innes, a spokesperson for Anglian Water said: 'We cannot pretend work on this scale won't cause disruption to people, which is why we wanted to let them know what we are planning and why.

'These new pipes mean people in this part of Norfolk will have a much improved and more reliable water supply for years to come.'
