Why are we doing this work?
To ensure our customers in Cookham continue to enjoy top quality tap water, South East Water will be laying a new water main in the area.
Work on the £63,000 scheme, approximately 295 metres in length, will begin on Monday 9 January 2017 and the project is expected to be completed by the end of February 2017.
Where are we working?
Work to install the new water main will take place along Hockett Lane from the junction with Winter Hill Road and the entire length of East Paddock.
If possible we will be using directional drilling techniques which involve excavating a series of pits where the pipe will run between then drilling the new water pipe. If this is not possible, traditional trenching techniques will be used.
Construction works will be carried out in stages with the road being returned to its original state upon completion of one section. The working area will then move along to the next section.
As a safety precaution for pedestrians, motorists and our contractor, we will need to temporarily close Hockett Lane and East Paddock while this work takes place.
However, please be assured that access to homes and businesses will be maintained at all times.
Work will take place during normal office hours however some work may also take place at weekends.
