Iden Road

The main sewer that carries the wastewater from Iden village away for treatment was built more than 50 years ago and has burst on a number of times in recent years.

We’re constructing a new 1.9km main along Iden Road to replace the existing pipe which is in nearby farmland.

The work will be carried out by our delivery partner MGJV. It will start on the 17 July 2017 and be completed by 10 September 2017.


Iden Road will be closed from the junction with A268 Rye Road to the junction with Playden Lane, from July 31 for six weeks and a diversion will be in place.

There will be no access for through traffic during this time, however, residents of Iden Lane will be able to access their properties.

All of the businesses, including The Bell Public House, are very much open as usual.

  1. Why are we building a new sewer? 
    • We’re committed to removing wastewater effectively while looking after the environment.

      It will start on the 17 July 2017 and be completed by 10 September 2017.
  4. Will any roads be closed while the sewer is built? 
    • Iden Road will be closed from the junction of Rye Road until the junction of Randolph Lane / Playden Lane, and a diversion will be in place.

      There will be no access for through traffic from the 31 July 2017, however, residents of Iden Lane will be able to access their properties.
