A BUSY route into St Helens will be back open tomorrow night (Friday) after a £1.5m project to clean a watercourse was completed on time.

Washway Lane will be reopened after United Utilities’ improvements on the sewer system in the area were successfully finished.

The closure has led to significant traffic congestion on surrounding roads over the past few months.

The scheme will prevent untreated wastewater entering Rainford Brook in the town.

A 75metre section of Washway Lane was closed between the BOC Factory and Scafell Road.

Matt Parr, United Utilities Project Co-ordinator, said: “We’re delighted this project has finished on time and would like to thank people for their patience.

“The good news is that the road is now back open and Rainford Brook will be cleaner than it has been for many years.”

Bearing in mind the debacle of Eccleston Street, now closed again for United Utilities to carry out remedial work on something they supposedly fixed last year, lets see how long Washway Lane remains open.
