We’re committed to reducing the risk of flooding and improving water quality in the natural environment. This work will enable us to significantly reduce the risk of sewer flooding in the Southcrest area.

Our progress so far

Progress - 30%

Start date

22 June 2020

Upcoming work

Over the next 4 weeks we will be installing the 1.5m dia. section of the surface water storage on Tunnel Drive, completing the installation of the sewer storage tank in Mayfields Carpark and continuing the drainage works on Parsons Road.


Bird nesting delay
The bird nesting by Tunnel Drive car park has delayed the works on the sewage water tank. The connection to the tank was not possible as the pipework runs right under the tree that had the bird nesting. As for the moment the bird is no
longer present and a tree surgent has been called to site and will be
attending site on 7 October 2020.

Work in Progress

Tarmacking on Tunnel Drive started on 5 October 2020.


In addition to this we have also started scanning and marking up at the bottom of Parsons Road. It is still very early days therefore we will be able to update you
with proper progress by the end of July.


The road closure on Tunnel Drive/Parsons Road started on 22 June 2020 and we are on track to complete the works in this section by 12 October 2020.
The two way traffic lights on Parsons Road are on the first phase and will be
an ever presence until all three phases are complete on 09 December 2020 taking 200m of Parsons Road at a time.
