A217 Brighton Road, Burgh Heath - SES Water works

SES Water

Location: A217 Brighton Road, Burgh Heath

Duration: 26 June 2017 to the end of March 2018

Update 5 January

We have agreed an amended works programme with SES Water through to the end of March 2018, extending the project by approximately one month. SES have experienced engineering difficulties in  sections of the project which has pushed back the completion date.

However, work will take place all day on both Saturdays and Sundays for the remainder of the project in order to lessen the chances of any further extension of the programme. SES Water will be sending an update to all affected residents and updating their dedicated webpage for this project.

Reason for works

Installation of a new 500mm plastic water mains pipe as part of the directive from Ofwat to provide greater flexibility and resilience for distributing water to customers, particularly during periods of low rainfall and drought.

The 2.8 kilometre water mains pipe will be installed between the existing reservoirs at Burgh Heath and Nork. A detailed assessment of the route has been undertaken and environmental management measures agreed with stakeholders.
