Stroud Sewerage Upgrade

We are improving the sewerage system in Stroud to help prevent flooding and spills in the area.

Our progress so far

We need to carry out sewerage upgrade works across Stroud in order to reduce future sewer flooding and spills in your area. Following our investigation works in 2021, we have now reached the next stage in our project and our main work is due to begin in March 2022. In preparation of this start date, we will need to carry out some vegetation removal which will include hedge and tree removal where it has been deemed necessary. 

This activity is due to start in mid-February 2022 and will take approximately a couple of days to complete, this will include tree removal adjacent to the River Frome. The work will help to facilitate the installation of new sewer across the River Frome.  

Work starting 9 May 2022 - Work will begin on 9 May for approximately three months; we will be upsizing the existing pipework through Waitrose Car Park and Stroud District Council Car Park. This work will allow surface water to discharge into local watercourses, rather than going into our sewers, which could cause spillages into local rivers.

Both car parks will remain open for the duration of our work, but will need to set up a small storage compound within the Stroud District Council Car Park for welfare facilities and materials. A number of parking spaces will be out of use within Waitrose whilst we undertake this important work.

We apologise for any inconvenience. We’ve been working closely with Waitrose and the Council to plan the work at the least disruptive times.

A Tunnel Boring Machine named ‘Florence’ has been launched as part of the £25m project to upgrade the sewer network in Stroud.

Our pledge that we’ll Get River Positive by 2030.

During this work,you may notice an increase in traffic along London Road, as well as more noise than usual.Due to the nature of our work, and to keep everyone safe, there will be some disruption tocarparking in both sites, as we will need to close a number of parking bays to safely fence off our works. We’re really sorry about any nuisance we cause during this essential work.
