We are working to replace 3km of water mains in Awbridge to reduce the risk of bursts and ensure we can continue to provide a constant supply of high quality drinking water to our customers.
The road closure on Stanbridge Lane has been in place since 16 January 2017 and has been extended until 19 May. Access for residents has been maintained and we are working closely with the community to minimise any disruption.
We will continue to lay the new water main along Stanbridge Lane and Romsey Road from Kent's Oak to the railway crossing east of Awbridge until the end of April.
Romsey Road will be closed from 26 July until 01 September during the school summer break with work to start at the junction of Danes Lane during the Easter Holidays to avoid disruption to school parking.
The work is being conducted on our behalf by our delivery partner MGjv, whose staff will be available to you throughout the programme of works
We will be completing these works under extended working hours and at weekends
There might be occasions when our staff are not at the working area itself but are carrying out essential activities elsewhere
A combination of traditional 'open cut' techniques will be used alongside advanced 'no-dig' technology to lay the new pipe
Update 17 April:
We have finished installation of another 200m of pipe. We have another 200m planned this week which will complete the pipe installation phase
The test results for the first half of the pipe have passed, as expected. We will bring this section online on Thursday 20 April
We will start the testing of the second section as soon as it is in the ground. This will happen concurrently with other operations to ensure we use the time we have efficiently. We will also be continuing with our service transfer excavations
Following the Easter break, we have resumed extended working hours and weekend working
We remain on schedule to compete the works by May 19.
We will provide plenty of notice for customers regarding traffic management plans before the work begins.
Your water supply will be disconnected once the new main is safely in place. We will give you at least 24 hours' notice before disconnection and it will be for no longer than four hours
