Severn Trent to begin sewer network upgrades in Tiddington, Warwickshire

Friday 13 May 2022

Severn Trent has started a £360k upgrade to the sewer network in Tiddington.

The water and waste company will improve 1400m of existing sewers to protect against future sewer flooding in the area. Work will start along Tiddington Road on Monday 16th May and will take approximately eight weeks to complete.

In the majority of cases, teams will be using ‘trenchless’ techniques to re-line the sewers, using existing manholes. This will reduce the need for excavations and reduce the time each piece of work takes.

To keep engineers and other road users safe, temporary traffic lights will be in operation throughout the project.

Lisa Orme from Severn Trent said: “Every so often, we need to carry out essential upgrade works on our sewer network and we with the aim of reducing the number of flooding incidents.

“This is why we are investing a significant amount of money in Tiddington to make sure local residents don’t experience this in the future. 

“We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused and we’ll be doing everything we can to minimise any disruption during this essential work.”
