Planned works and interruptions

We regularly carry out planned works and projects to repair and upgrade our systems.

As a result some disruption to service and traffic interruptions may occur. We try and keep these to a minimum and where possible provide advance notice in local newspapers, on this website and by direct mail.

We have not listed all our current planned works below; just the works that may impact customers from traffic or service interruptions.

The information is as up-to-date as possible but is subject to change at short notice. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
