A £160,000 project to replace 700 metres of water pipes in Clent will start on Monday (June 2).

Severn Trent Water has invested the cash as pipes in Woodman Lane and Odnall Lane have leaked numerous times over the last few years, due to age.

The water provider's programme manager, Jonathan Tait, said: “We will need to close part of Woodman Lane and Odnall Lane for a short time during the work, but we’ve done everything we can to minimise any disruption for local residents.

“We’ve written to everyone in the area to let them know what’s going on, and our team are more than happy to help anyone who has any questions.”

Work is expected to be complete in the middle of July.
