Chestfield Road, Whitstable
26 April 2017

Why are we doing this work?

To ensure our customers in the area continue to enjoy top quality tap water, we will be installing a new water main along Chestfield Road, Whitstable.

The water main which runs within the verge along Chestfield Road has suffered a number of bursts. This is unacceptable to us and to help rectify the situation, we will be replacing the old unreliable water main.

Where are we working?

Works to install the new pipeline will take place just north of the junction between South Street and Chestfield Road and will then continue along Chestfield Road terminating in the verge to the East.

During the works a temporary road closure will be in place. We have been working closely with Kent County Council and it has been agreed that a road closure will not only provide suitable safety measures for the public and our workforce, but is the best method for causing as little disruption as possible.

When will the work take place?

Construction is planned to start on Thursday 24 July 2017 and the project is expected to last approximately five weeks, finishing at the end of August 2017.

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