Following investigations into the ownership and responsibility of the fresh water supply apparatus, Severn Trent water found that it was the responsibility of Shell to maintain the water supply into their business.

Upon further inspection, it was believed that the fresh water supply pipe may have been damaged during recent works carried out on the A2 on behalf of the Highways Agency.


NMC provided a safe method of working and detailed traffic management plan, this included a diversion route from the slip road off the busy A52 “Brian Clough Way into Victoria Avenue”. A road opening licence application was submitted under Section 50 of the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 for the approval by A one _ and the Highways Agency. The application was subsequently accepted and granted by the Secretary of State for Transport. NMC engaged Severn Trent Water to repair and install the damaged fresh water supply pipe/apparatus.

Dialogue was exchanged between NMC and Erewash Borough Council environmental officer regarding environmental issues on behalf of Shell for the duration of the works.
