South East Water invests £860,000 in new water main for Etchingham
21 December 2016

South East Water is planning an £860,000 scheme to install more than two kilometres of new water main in Etchingham, East Sussex, to improve its supply network and and ensure it can continue to maintain water pressure to the area as the community grows.

Work is due to start on Monday 30 January along Shrub Lane and Battenhurst Road and will involve a rolling road closure. The work is expected to take approximately 10 months to complete.

Stephen Bundock, Project Manager at South East Water, said: “The safety of motorists and our workforce is our top priority when carrying out work which is why we will need to have a rolling road closure in operation. However, access for residents and businesses will be maintained at all times.

“I would like to apologise for the disruption this work will cause but hope motorists and the local community understand the long term benefits this new water main will deliver.”

The scheme forms part of the company’s £424 million investment programme taking place between 2015 and 2020.
