The work to improve the sewer system in Ashton is entering a new phase.For the next two weeks remedial work is being carried out in Hilton Street and Hodnet Drive. Then on the weekends of the 24th and 25th February and the 3rd and 4th March - weather permitting - United Utilities will be back in Bolton Road finishing off that part of the scheme with a view to turning on the new system.
Major works will then centre around Princess Road starting on March 5th, lasting for 12 to 16 weeks. There will be an exhibition held in a mobile van in Princess Road for residents to see what effect the works will have on the roads in the area.
The whole project is scheduled to finish by the end of May.
