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

IWC – Recycling Information

Information provided from Isle of Wight Council Waste & Recycling

Hark! Concerned about not recycling properly?

Here are some top tips for recycling commonly wasted paper and card at Christmas in the right way:

Gifts galore
• Christmas cards that don’t have glitter on are recyclable (glitter causes issues in the recycling process as it can’t be removed). So remember to tear off any glitter sections or non-paper items like badges and batteries.
• With wrapping paper and gift bags there is the super handy scrunch test: if you scrunch it and it doesn’t spring back, then it can be recycled – sorted!
• Cardboard packaging, including that from online shopping, can be recycled. Simply flatten to save space and remove any plastic or polystyrene.

A little goes a long way
• Toilet roll tubes often get forgotten but it’s easy and worthwhile to recycle them. If everyone on the Isle of Wight recycled two toilet roll tubes over the Christmas week, it would save enough energy to power the St Mary’s Hospital for one day!

Ashey Road Closure

As many of you are now no doubt aware, Ashey Road is closed for works. This is for works by Southern Water, not Island Roads.

Southern Water made a presentation to Ryde Town Council regarding the works. The PowerPoint presentation is attached for your information, but two key slides will answer most of peoples questions regarding times and dates.
