James Smith_247px.jpgWe are currently preparing our programme of water mains upgrade work in the Kent area for the 2016/17 financial year.

Below is a provisional list of roads where work is planned to take place.

As preparations move forward, we will update this table with proposed start dates, durations and traffic management, however please be aware that this is a continually evolving programme therefore is subject to change.


Ahead of any work beginning we will endeavour to write to those residents and businesses which may be directly affected by our work. These letters will provide more specific information regarding the pipework installation which is to be undertaken and how we will work with the community to limit any disruption.
