Medstead - improving the water network

Why are we doing this work?

As part of an ongoing programme to improve our water supply network we are planning a scheme to install a new 1,340-metre water pipeline from a private track off Boyneswood Road and along Red Hill and Five Ash Road.

This £385,000 scheme is necessary to improve the capacity of the network and ensure we can continue to maintain water pressure to the area as the community grows.

Where are we working?

Work to install the new water main will be carried out in three phases.

Phase 1 – Along a private track off Boyneswood Road from 22 May until 27 June

Phase 2 – Along Red Hill from 27 June until 9 October

Phase 3 – Along Five Ash Road from 9 October until 23 January.

Construction work will be carried out within the carriageway on Red Hill and Five Ash Road, with the road being returned to its original state upon completion of the project.

As a safety precaution for pedestrians and motorists, our contractor will need to close Red Hill and Five Ash Road. This will be carried out under a rolling road closure and the new main will be installed in sections before that section is reinstated and the work moves along to the next stage.

However, please be assured that access to homes and businesses will be maintained at all times.

Work will take place during normal working hours, although there may be some activities at weekends.

Our project team will be holding a drop-in session for local businesses and residents to find out more about the scheme and answer any concerns you may have.

This will take place between 4.15pm and 6.45pm on Wednesday 17 May 2017 at Medstead Village Hall, Roedowns Road, Medstead, Hampshire, GU34 5LG.
