Water main upgrade completed ahead of schedule
11 September 2017

A £180,000 investment to improve 750 metres of unreliable water main in Heath Road, West Farleigh has been completed.

The new pipeline replaces an old stretch of water main which kept bursting, causing customers to suffer loss of water supplies and low pressure.

Work began in July and the project was expected be finished around the end of September, however progress was good and the scheme has completed ahead of schedule.

Jeremy Dufour, Project Manager at South East Water, said: “The team has worked hard to complete the scheme as quickly and safely as possible. We always strive to upgrade older sections of our network as promptly as we can to prevent bursts happening in the future.

“We know roadworks can be frustrating and I’d like to thank residents and motorists for their patience and cooperation during these essential works.”

This work forms part of the company’s £424 million programme of investment between 2015 and 2020 to improve water supplies to customers.
