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 July 4, 2017
You may have noticed there hasn’t been much visible work on site this week.
Please be assured we’re working hard to complete our scheme as quickly and as safely as possible, and our team should be back on site later this week.
Update - June, 2017
All our new pipes undergo stringent testing and commissioning before being put into permanent use.
While most pass these tests first time, there are occasions when we need to return to make further checks and adjustments. We’ll also be carrying out further reinstatement work to the road surface.
This will delay our completion date, which is now scheduled for 30 June 2017.
We apologise for any inconvenience these works are causing and would like to thank everyone for their co-operation and patience as we complete these final stages.
Below is a map showing the proposed route of the new water main.
