New pipes for Stratford-Upon-Avon as part of £3m investment!
Wednesday 10th March 2021
Severn Trent will begin essential work to upgrade water pipes in Stratford-Upon-Avon starting next week.
The water company is replacing around half a kilometre of aging 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 £3m investment the company is making across Warwickshire, where it is replacing over 15km 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 working partners Kier will be carrying out work on behalf of the company, that is expected to take four months to complete.
The project begins on Monday 15 March 2021 and includes plans for two temporary road closures, lights in order to keep everyone safe. The work is due to be carried out on Redlands Crescent and South Green Drive.
“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, adds Shannon. “When complete, those living in the area will benefit from a reliable network, that will serve the community for years to come.”
