New water pipes for Winchcombe, as Severn Trent starts £50,000 water improvement project

30th June 2021

Severn Trent is to begin work on a £50,000 water pipe improvement project in Gloucester on Monday.

The company will be installing brand new pipes along Greet Road, helping to provide the area with a more resilient water supply.

Janine Billington from Severn Trent said: “We’re really looking forward to kicking off this project in Winchcombe, as we know just how much of a difference it’s going to make to those living here.

“The older the pipes get, the less reliable they are and more problems occur like leaks and bursts. 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, with less risk of pipes bursting or causing problems.”

Severn Trent working partners Watertight will be carrying out the work on behalf of the company, that is expected to be completed by mid-September.

Teams will begin work on Greet Road, from the Old Station House and work down towards Pennyland Way before working towards Kenelm Rise.

“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 Janine. “When complete, those living in the area will benefit from a reliable network, that will serve the community for years to come.”
