Coachmans Drive, Broadfield, Crawley

Southern Water are working with Clancy Docwra to carry out essential water main replacement works in Crawley.

The old water pipes in Tollgate Hill, Coachmans Drive and Woodmans Hill have suffered a number of bursts in recent years and have reached the end of their operational life.

We are investing £700,000 in the local area by replacing 2 kilometres of old main with a new, highly durable pipe to safeguard water supplies for the community effectively into the future. 

Latest update - July 2018

We've laid the new water mains in Tollgate Hill and Coachmans Drive. To minimise the impact on motorists and other road users, work will begin in Woodmans Hill once the school holidays have begun with temporary traffic lights in place. This work is scheduled to be finished by the end of the summer.

What does the work entail?

Work began in late February on Tollgate Hill at the junction with Hollingbourne Crescent and will progress north, continuing across the roundabout and along Coachmans Drive, before then returning back down Woodmans Hill.

This work is expected to be fully complete by December 2018. 

We’ll be working in short sections to minimise local disruption as much we’re able, with temporary lights controlling traffic past the work. These temporary traffic lights will be manually operated during morning and evening peak hours to aid the flow of traffic.

If during the scheme we need to interrupt people's water supplies for a short time, for example to connect a property onto the new water main, we will give them at least 48 hours’ notice.
If you or someone you look after have any special requirements for water supply, for example dialysis, please contact us on the details below.

Where can I find out more?

We will be working hard to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum and appreciate your support during this essential work. Please do not hesitate to contact the customer service team on 0330 303 0368 if you would like more information. Calls are charged at local rates. Please quote PRN 629041.
