Severn Trent's £60m in Newark progresses in Hawtonville

Wednesday 1st November 2017

Severn Trent’s £60m investment in Newark continues to progress well, as the company returns to resurface roads in Hawtonville next week.

While the company continue to lay new bigger and better sewer pipes in the area, they will now be returning to permanently resurface some of the roads where work has been completed.

Tim Sawyer, from Severn Trent said: “The work we’re doing in Newark is coming along really well, and we’re looking forward to everyone seeing the benefits of the project when finished.

“On some of the roads where we have already laid new sewer pipes around Hawtonville, to minimise impact to residents and allow vehicle access back to properties as soon as possible we have first used a temporary road surface,  we’re now going back to lay a permanent road surface, making sure everything is back to normal.”

Severn Trent is currently working in Newark improving the waste and water services across the entire town.

When complete in 2020, more than 400 homes and businesses will be protected from sewer flooding, and the town will also have a reliable water supply for future generations.

“We’ll start on Bailey Road before moving on to Eton Avenue, we’ll then move to Pierson Street and Churchill Drive.” Said Tim. “To do this work the road must be clear of parked vehicles, so we would really appreciate everyone’s co-operation as we’re working. We completely understand that there’s never a good time to close roads, however when we’ve done this the majority of our work on these roads will be complete.”

Severn Trent contract partners BNMAlliance are carrying out work on behalf of the company for the project, with the resurfacing in Hawtonville expected to be complete by the end of the week.

“We also want to say thank you to everyone in Newark for supporting us as we continue our work.”
