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.
We expect the work to be completed by May 2017. 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.
The excavation in Morton Road is due to be resurfaced during the week of 6 March 2017. We will then move up Morton Road and will shorten the distance between the two-way lights. This should help ease traffic congestion.
The current schedule is:
Below is a map showing the proposed route of the new water main.
