Yorkshire Water to undertake vital work on New Road, Mytholmroyd

Update - Thursday 21st February

The Yorkshire Water work on New Road, Mytholmroyd is due to finish ahead of schedule and they plan to reopen the road tomorrow (Friday) morning. Buses through the area will resume their regular service.

Press release from Yorkshire Water - Friday 15th February

From midnight on Sunday 17th February, Yorkshire Water will be temporarily closing New Road in Mytholmroyd to traffic as it undertakes vital work to future-proof its water main to prevent it from leaking and help secure water supplies for its customers in Calderdale.

The work will involve Yorkshire Water slip lining the water main which will make it more robust.

The road closure will be in place until the evening of Friday 22nd February, but the company will do everything it can to get this work completed sooner. 

Emily Brady from Yorkshire Water said: "We understand this will be disruptive for local residents but it’s really important we get this work done to prevent further bursts. A fully signed diversion will be in place to help direct traffic."

The 901 Huddersfield - Hebden Bridge bus service will be running in the day (first service 9.10 AM from Hudds, last service 4.40 PM) and will run the usual route down Cragg Vale but will turn around at the old Fire Station and return to Huddersfield, so people can get off here and walk to Burnley Road for connecting buses to Hebden Bridge or Halifax. 

The early morning and evening services (7, 8, 9 AM and services after 4.10) are not currently running.

The Hebden - Huddersfield 901 will not be running at all until New Road Bridge is re-opened.
