St Helen’s Road – closure update

Workers seem to be making good progress in restoring the carriageway surface on St Helen’s Road raising hopes that the street may reopen later today or tomorrow at the latest.

So far Yorkshire Water have issued no statement indicating how that burst main occurred, although it is not the first time that the road has been dug up this year.

St Helen’s Road closure to continue

Dringhouses School will reopen tomorrow (Thursday) but with pedestrian access only.

Yorkshire Water apologises for “low water pressure” in area.

St Helens Road expected to be closed throughout Thursday.

Yorkshire Water criticised for “poor communications” over cause of burst main and likely time for restoration of service. “Should make better use of social media” say local Councillors.
