YORKSHIRE Water is on schedule to complete extensive roadworks in Huddersfield town centre.
But there is bad news for local drivers as the company plans to carry out more works in Leeds Road, the scene of many workings in recent months.
Teams of workers will move into Leeds Road to replace long stretches of water mains.
It will mean more disruption for thousands of motorists.
Currently, there are resurfacing roadworks between Bradley and Deighton on Leeds Road.
New pavements have been completed at Bradley and work on a new junction to serve the Poundstretcher development on the site of the former Hollidays chemical plant is almost complete.
Yorkshire Water has started a multi-million-pound programme to replace ageing water mains.
The company is to spend more than £3m on the work in the Huddersfield area.
The work in the town centre began in March. It is to replace and re-line more than 10 kilometres (about six miles) of mains. It is hoped it will be finished by December.
Project manager David Lilley said: "We are past the halfway mark in the town centre scheme and the good news is that it is on schedule.
"This is a huge project and this part will see 10.4 kilometres of mains being replaced, re-lined or simply cleaned.
"Once the town centre work is complete workers will need to move on to the projects planned in the Leeds Road area and Mirfield.
"We are asking the local community to bear with us as this is vital repair work on water mains that are more than 100 years old," added Mr Lilley.
"Our work will improve water quality and supplies in Huddersfield greatly, resulting in even better water quality reaching the taps."
