Novemebr 2016

Work gets underway from later this month on an £800,000 water main scheme that will protect customers’ drinking water supplies in parts of Bookham, Surrey.
Sutton and East Surrey Water is to replace a total of 2.7km of old cast iron water mains with new, tougher plastic pipes that are less prone to bursts and leaks.

The work will take place in the following roads:
• Merrylands Road
• Barn Meadow Lane
• Middlemead Road
• Tudor Close
• Oakdene Road
• Burrows Close
• Twelve Acre Close
• Sole Farm Avenue
• Edenside Road

 

Work will start during the week commencing 28th November 2016 and, apart from breaking over the Christmas and New Year period, will continue until July 2017 which is when the overall project is due for completion.
Chris Burnup, Civil Engineer at Sutton and East Surrey Water, said: “The existing water mains were laid back in the 1930s and have done a good job transporting thousands of litres of top quality water every day.
“However, they have now reached the end of their working life – we know this as we’ve seen an increasing number of bursts and leaks occurring.

 “Each time this happens it causes emergency repairs, interruptions to customers’ water supplies and the loss of what is a precious and finite resource.

“This important project will make sure both existing and future customers in this part of Bookham continue to receive a reliable supply of top quality drinking water.”

Due to the need to work in the road, some traffic management will be needed to keep residents, motorists and the workforce safe.

Chris added: “These traffic management arrangements are being finalised with Surrey Highways as clearly much of what is needed will depend on the nature of the road we are working in.
“However, I’d like to reassure customers that we will make sure they can always access their properties and driveways.”
