Doncastle Road, Bracknell - improving the water network

*Update 26 April 2017

Work is progressing well and the team on site is now starting to lay the water main in Peacock Lane.

From Tuesday 2 May we will be implementing the second phase of our traffic management which will require a lane closure on the northbound exit of the roundabout off Doncastle Road leading to Berkshire Way.

Once this section of pipework has been laid, we will then introduce the third phase of our traffic management to close the southbound entry from Berkshire Way to Doncastle Road. The northbound lane will be reopened at this time.

Once the roundabout crossing is complete, we will look to implement the final phase of our traffic management which will be a full one-way system around Doncastle Road.

We anticipate that we will be at this stage in three weeks’ time, depending on site conditions encountered as we progress.

Why are we doing this work?

To ensure our customers in the area continue to enjoy top quality and reliable tap water, South East Water is planning a £207,000 scheme to replace a 720-metre section of water main along Peacock Lane and Doncastle Road.

How can we ensure this work is done with minimum disruption?

For the safety of our workforce and the public, we will need to implement a one-way system while this work takes place.

We have been working closely with Bracknell Forest Council to plan this work and have agreed this is the only measure to keep our workforce and the public safe and to keep disruption to a minimum.

When is the work due to start?

The work will take place from Monday 13 February 2017 and is expected to be complete by the end of August 2017. However our contractor’s staff will work as hard as they can to complete the work as quickly and safely as possible.

Work will take place during normal office hours during the week. We will also be working on Saturdays to help speed up this work.
