We’re improving your supply of wonderful water…

  • We’re going to be doing some vital improvement work in your area
  • We plan to start work on the water main from 8 April 2019.


Why we’re doing this work

We’re committed to making sure our customers receive a continuous supply of water now and in the future. So, we’re constantly checking the condition of our network and recognise that we need to upgrade some of the water pipes in your area.


Important things to know

We plan to start work on a small section of the water main from 8 April 2019, on Griffiths Drive. Work will start at the mini Island using traffic lights and move gradually along Griffiths Drive. To allow us to complete this work quickly and safely we will have a road closure in place on a small section of Griffiths Drive. This is to ensure your safety and the safety of our workforce. The location of the work and durations can be found on the rear diagram.


There are sections of parking for the shops which will not be accessible during this work. We respectfully request vehicle owners find alternative parking, however, pedestrian access will be maintained, at all times. There may be occasions when vehicle access to your property is restricted; for example, when we’re working on the road directly outside your property. We’ll let you know in advance if this is going to be the case – please let us know if you have any specific requirements or needs.


Please bear with us…

Although it’s really important, we also know work on this scale can, at times, be inconvenient. Please rest assured that we, and our contract partner Amey, will be doing everything we can to minimise the disruption and get the work finished as quickly as we can.


Will my water supply be interrupted?

If we plan to interrupt your water supply during these works, we will let you know in advance.


Do you own a retail business?

If you own and operate a business which benefits from customers visiting to purchase goods or services from you and our works are affecting your custom, then please contact our Business Compensation team at for advice.
