Earl and Duke Streets

31 January 2010

Work has begun on the next stage to help Earl and Duke Streets, Oxford. Thames Water, in conjunction with Oxfordshire County Council, is connecting gullies in Earl Street into the existing underground pumps so flood water can be pumped away more quickly. This is being done by connecting the pump chamber to a chamber in Lamarsh Road (Oriel Mews), which is, in turn, to be connected to the main run of surface water gullies in Earl Street.
