Froxfield Tower

Why are we doing this work?

As part of an ongoing programme to improve our water supply network we are planning a £250,000 scheme to install 270 metres of new water main along and a new booster station at our Froxfield Water Tower site.

When are we working?

Construction is planned to start at our site and take place through private land terminating at Honeycritch Lane. The scheme will also involve laying a new power cable along part of Honeycritch Lane before heading towards the water tower.

Construction is planned to start on Monday 18 September 2017 and the project is expected to take approximately ten weeks to complete.

However our contractor’s staff will work as hard as they can to complete the work as quickly and safely as possible.
We will be using traditional trenching techniques to install the new section of water main.

Construction works will be carried out in stages, with the road being returned to its original state upon completion of one section before the working area moves along to the next stage.

As a safety precaution for pedestrians, motorists and our contractor there will be special signs around the working area indicating the way traffic should flow.

Access to homes and businesses will be maintained at all times.

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