Tunbridge Wells - Connaught Way and Culverden Park
26 October 2016

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 900 metres of new water main along Connaught Way and Culverden Park, Tunbridge Wells.

The £315,000 scheme will allow South East Water 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?

The new pipe will be laid along Connaught Way and Culverden Park.

To ensure the safety of the public and our contractor while the new pipe is laid, we will need to close Connaught Way and Culverden Park during the project.

Construction works will be carried out in stages, with the road being returned to its original state upon completion of one section before the working area moves along to the next stage.

In addition, temporary traffic lights will be in operation at the junction of Byng Road and Connaught Way.

When will the work take place?

The scheme is planned to start on Tuesday 3 January 2017 and is expected to take approximately 16 weeks to complete.

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