On many occasions drainage problems are traced to locations beneath the public highway. This is not a problem for Calderdale Sewer Services.

Our excavation teams are fully qualified to work in the highway and have all the certification needed to complete the work safely to the requirements of the highway authority, whether it is just survey and jetting work or excavation and repair.

We will carry out risk assessments, arrange any highway opening licenses required by law and provide all the signing, guarding and traffic control measures needed.

From minor excavations to release stubborn blockages to new drain and sewer installation all work is carried out to the highest standards and will be backfilled and reinstated to Highway Authority specification.

For deep excavations our teams are trained in trench timbering and installation of proprietary shoring systems and all work areas are fenced off, coned and signed according to regulations. We are also CHAS registered and accredited.


With long experience of working under these conditions Calderdale Sewer Services strive to make the completion of any task within the public highway as seamless as possible for our client and the general public.
