We are working to replace 660m of water mains in Brading on the Isle of Wight to reduce the risk of bursts and ensure we can continue to provide a constant supply of high quality drinking water to our customers.
Work to lay the new pipe began in January 2017. It will include the renewal of water mains in Old Morton Road, Hadrians Way and Claredon Close.
A combination of traditional 'open cut' techniques will be used alongside advanced 'no-dig' technology to lay the new pipe.
There will be some traffic management, which include temporary traffic lights and road closures. We will provide plenty of notice for customers regarding traffic management plans before the work begins.
Update - 10 April, 2017
Works on the four-way junction will be completed and the traffic lights removed before Easter. Work in Clarendon Close is also due to finish around the same time.
We will be excavating in Old Morton Road and Hadrians Way next week. If all goes well this will be conducted via directional drilling.
After the Easter break, we’re planning to continue with the remaining 100m along Morton Road.
The scheme is due to complete by the end of May 2017.
Below is a map showing the proposed route of the new water main.
