Highclere water main improvements

We are working to replace 3.6km of water mains in Highclere to reduce the risk of bursts and ensure we can continue to provide a constant supply of high quality drinking water to our customers.

We're working closely with the community to make sure any disruption is kept to a minimum.

All grass verges in the areas we've been working will be top-soiled and grass-seeded at the end of the project, which is now scheduled for October 2017.

Highways verges

  • Highway verge areas will be complete with topsoil and seed.

  • Areas that are being looked after by residents will have an upgraded reinstatement of new turf. These areas have been agreed by the residents’ representatives.

  • This will be completed in October.

  • We will supply bulbs to replace any flowers that have been damaged.

    Consequential damage to road edges

  • All edges and kerbs that have been damaged by vehicles passing excavations will be repaired to the required highway standard.

    Drainage ditches

  • Some ditches have already have been cleared out.

  • Others will be cleared as a gesture of good will.

    Resurfacing

  • Some areas are currently temporarily reinstated. All Tarmac is required to be completed to highways standards and is subject to appraisal.

    Specific customer issues

  • We are working with customers who have specific issues relating to reinstatement caused by extended time of excavations.

    We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and would like to thank you in advance for your co-operation and patience. We appreciate your support during these essential works.
