Celandine Drive - Water Mains Renewal

We are working to replace the water mains around Celandine Drive in St Leonards to reduce the risk of bursts.

We are currently replacing the mains to the residential areas either side of Gillsmans Hill Road. To the north is Celandine Drive. Work is underway at the junction of Doucegrove up to the junction and to the south, Hollington Park Road until the junction with Marlborough Close.

A number of holes have been dug in the area and we will be using a drilling machine ‘launched’ from these holes to create the space in the ground for the new pipes. This technique minimises disruption as we do not have to open up trenches along the full route of the pipeline. 

Update 12 April 2017

  • We're pressure testing new pipes in Hollington Park Road and there is still some main pipe to be installed. 
  • We're resurfacing in Celandine Drive, Douce Grove and Arbourvale. All excavations that can be filled in this area will be before Easter weekend. 
  • Towards the end of April we will be looking at changing the services over and that will include water shut-offs, however, we will let the residents know 48 hours in advance of these happening.
  • Normal working hours will be between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday although there may be days when work begins later or concludes earlier.
