Forest Row rising main replacement work

Our work in Forest Row is part of a rolling programme to replace rising mains which are a vital part of our wastewater network.

Upgrading the sewers helps prevent bursts and reduces the risk of flooding and pollution incidents and ensures we can continue to remove wastewater effectively.

Our construction partners MGJV will be doing this work on our behalf. They’ll be starting in early May 2017 and the work is expected to take 20 weeks to complete.

We don't expect to have to close any roads but you may see some extra site traffic on Hartfield Road which may be turning into Lines Lane. This is a small unmade lane adjacent to the road which leads to Ashdown House School.

We are working closely with residents nearby by to ensure they maintain access to their homes.

The work to lay the mains will be on private land with permissions already gained. It will follow a route on land next to the popular cycle and bridle path Forest Way.

We apologise for any inconvenience we may cause while we work in your community, however, we will do everything we can to ensure we keep any noise and visual impact to a minimum.

The new main will be routed into Southern Water's site compound off Parrock Lane.

It is expected the work will be complete by the end of August.
