Euxton Lane closure extended to complete

Euxton Lane improvement work update from NETWORK RAIL This week, we will be issuing an update to affected residents on the work. We are reaching the end of our important drainage improvement work that will help reduce flooding in this location. The work has proven challenging due to several difficult blockages and the number of bends along the 670m sections of the two drainage pipes. I am pleased to report that all the obstructions have been unblocked from both drains. A replacement pipe has been carefully re-laid in the first pipe and the second pipe will be fixed this week. The benefit of this work will mean that the drainage capacity of the road will be doubled, meaning that the surface water will now be taken away by two pipes instead of one previously. Once this work is finished, we need to return the road back into use by tarmacing areas where digging has taken place. After careful consideration, we have taken the decision to extend the road closure on Euxton Lane and School Lane by two weeks until the 27th January. This is for contingency purposes only - in case there are any unforeseen difficulties. Please be assured that we are working hard to complete this complex work well ahead of this time and we will write to you again once the road is ready to be reopened. Lastly, Network Rail would like to thank Euxton residents for their continued patience and cooperation while we complete this work. Please do keep in touch if you have any further questions on this work programme.
