Road ahead closed sign

From 21 July to 31 August [2022] Severn Trent Water will be carrying out work to replace a water main on the B5067 through Baschurch (also known as Shrewsbury Road/Prescott Road).

This work is to replace 456m of existing water main with new 90mm PE water main through open cut, directional drill and associated fittings.

Forkers will be carrying out the work on behalf of Severn Trent Water

For safety reasons the work will be carried out under a full road closure.

Whilst the road is closed, a signed diversion route will be in place. Access will be maintained to homes, businesses and the surgery at all times from the Prescott roundabout.

Affected residents and businesses have been notified and Severn Trent Water have held meetings with the community identifying various issues which are in the final stages of being resolved with support from local councillors.

The work is likely to cause significant impact in the Baschurch area and therefore works will be carried out within the school holiday period to minimise impact as much as possible.
