Severn Trent will begin essential work to upgrade water pipes in Stratford-Upon-Avon in the UK.
The water company is replacing around half a kilometre of ageing water pipes with brand new ones, to help reduce the amount of leaks and bursts in the area.
The work is part of a wider £3 million (€3.5 million) investment the company is making across Warwickshire, where it is replacing over 15 km of pipes.
Shannon Currall, from Severn Trent, said: “We know it’s still a difficult time for a lot of people right now, but making sure that our customers have a reliable supply of water is as important as ever during this time.
“This work will see us making sure our network is in the best possible condition, so everyone in the area will be able to enjoy a reliable water supply, as there’s less risk of pipes bursting or causing problems.”
Severn Trent’s working partner Kier will be carrying out work on behalf of the company, that is expected to take four months to complete.
The project begins on 15 March and includes plans for two temporary road closures.
“Our teams on site will be doing all that they can to minimise the disruption to the community, and we would like to thank everyone in advance, for both their patience and understanding, added Currall. “When complete, those living in the area will benefit from a reliable network, that will serve the community for years to come.”
