Ashley Road Update – March 27th

Good afternoon,

Please find below an update on our work at Ashey Road, which is also now on our website page (

Island Roads are allowing us early entry into West Street to continue work on the 350mm water main for a couple of weeks, until 9 April.

Work will pick up again at the junction with Arthur Street and head south, out of Ryde. This will be carried out under two-way lights, and will progress as far as can be achieved within that time.

To minimise the disruption to residents and businesses over the Easter period we’ve temporarily reopened Ashey Road, using two-way lights to keep traffic flowing around the working area.

We’ll then need to reinstate the road closure on 9 April for another five weeks to install the final length of pipe.

While we’ve been working in the area we’ve identified an additional 600 metres of water main that is in need of replacement.

To avoid the need for future disruption we’ve incorporated this additional work into our current programme. This means that we will be working for longer than originally planned, but we’ll be working hard to get the work completed as quickly as we can. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.

We thank everyone for their continued patience while we carry out this vital work

If you have any questions, please get in touch or email the Capital PR team on, quoting PRN 629621

Many thanks
