Further update on Bolton Road West Flooding

Monday: 14 December 2015.  12 noon.

Bury Council officials met with Electricity North West on Friday to agree a way forward on the issue of the damaged culvert.

It was agreed that Bury Council will be on site tomorrow (Tuesday) to begin excavations in an attempt to divert the flow of water via a temporary culvert to avoid the type of flooding we have seen in the past days and weeks.

It is clear that ENW will not/cannot move to the Council’s timetable, so the Council are having to take steps to resolve the situation in advance of them moving their cables.

The Council will be leafleting residents in the immediate area in advance of the work tomorrow.
