Severn Trent launches major investment in Malvern this week

Tuesday 9th February 2021

Severn Trent will begin essential work to upgrade the water network in Malvern this week. 

The water company is investing £100,000 to install 350 metres of brand-new pipes along Barnard’s Green Road, to help reduce the number of leaks and bursts in the area.

Engineers will begin outside Merrievale Court and move along Barnard’s Green Road, finishing at the Crown Lea Avenue junction. This major network upgrade is expected to take two months to complete. 

To keep Severn Trent engineers and other road users safe, temporary traffic lights will be in place throughout the project, moving along the road as the work progresses.

Catherine Webb from Severn Trent, said: “We know it’s a challenging time for everyone right now, but making sure our customers have a reliable water supply is as vital now as it’s everbeen. That’s why you’ll see our teams working along Barnard’s Green Road, carrying out these essential upgrades.

“We’ll be doing everything we can to minimise the disruption and we’d like to thank everyone in advance for their patience as we get this essential work done. Once all of the work is complete, the area will have a modern and reliable water network that will last for generations.”
