Project updates

Update 17 August 2017

Work on the final phase of our project along Reading Road will start on Monday (21 August).

This will see the remainder of the pipeline laid along a section of Reading Road between Red Hill and Vicarage Lane. We expect this to take approximately 13 weeks to complete.

To allow our workforce to safely lay this last section of water main, a road closure will be in place along Reading Road between Red Hill and Vicarage Lane. Road closures will also be in place along Red Hill, Bottle Lane and Vicarage Lane to discourage motorists from using these roads as rat run routes.

Motorists who do not live in these areas should follow the diversion route: Griffin Way South – London Road – Bracknell Lane – Reading Road (Heckfield) and Hound Green.

We know roadworks are frustrating for local residents but we would ask that you bear with us during this work.

Regular updates will be available on this page.

Update 5 July 2017

We have now completed the second phase of our scheme and will be demobilising from the area. We will return on 21 August to install the third phase between Red Hill and Vicarage Lane.
 
There will be on-going communication for all residents about our planned start and diversion routes in the near future.
 
We are holding a drop-in session on 5 July 2017 at Heckfield Memorial Hall, Church Lane, Heckfield, RG27 OLG from 16:00 to 19:00.
 
Thank you to local residents and motorists for your patience while this work continues.
