Anglian Water’s operational engineers will begin work to install 1km of new pipe in as part of a £250,000 (€277,000) investment programme.
The work, in Brantham, UK, which is due to commence from 17 August, will see the new water pipes installed in order to help strengthen and improve the resilience of the network, keeping taps flowing for years to come.
Anglian Water’s staff have continued with essential work such as this throughout the lockdown period. Teams on site continue to adhere to the latest advice on social distancing guidelines for their protection, and that of the local public.
David Hartley, the water company’s spokesman, said: “This work will help us to pump a higher volume of water into the network, ensuring that our customer’s water supply and pressure is resilient well into the future.
“We have planned the majority of the pipework to be installed in the fields adjacent to the A137 to reduce the amount of disruption caused. However, traffic management will be in place at points throughout the work to allow us to connect the new pipe to the existing water network.”
Two-way traffic lights will be in place on Brantham Bridge from 1-21 September with Stutton Road closed from 7 to 18 September 2020.
The company’s team of operational experts will be working on the project for seven weeks, with construction expected to be completed by the end of October.
