West Heath Road, Farnborough

*Update 13 June 2017 

We have now started work to lay our new pipe around West Heath Roundabout before we lay the small section in Fleet Road. While this section of the project takes place lane closures will be in place along the roundabout.

Thank you to local residents and motorists for your patience and we apologise for any inconvenience this section of work may cause.

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 will be laying a new water main along Fleet Road, Cove Road and West Heath Road, Farnborough.

The £750,000 scheme will improve the capacity of the network and ensure we can continue to meet water demand in the Farnborough area.

When will the work take place?

Work on this important project will begin on Monday 23 January 2017 and is expected to take approximately 38 weeks to complete. However our contractor, Clancy Docwra, will be working as quickly and safely as possible.

Where are we working?

The scheme will see a 1.3 kilometre section of new pipe laid along a section of Fleet Road, Cove Road and West Heath Road, Farnborough.

To ensure the safety of the public and our contractor while the new pipe is laid, we will need to temporarily close West Heath Road. To minimise disruption a rolling road closure will be in place here which means small sections of West Heath Road will be closed while we lay the new pipe and the affected road section will be re-opened before the working area moves along to the next section. 

The first section of the work will begin along West Heath Road at the junction with Prospect Road. Until the road closure moves along to Giffard Drive, motorists can use Giffard Drive and Mayfield Road to get to Prospect Road.

Once the working area moves past Giffard Drive, motorists should use Fernhill Road, Mayfield Road, Giffard Drive and re-join West Heath Road.

Temporary lane closures and traffic lights will also be in place along the other affected roads while the new pipe is being laid.

Please be assured that access to homes and businesses will be maintained at all times.
