Severn Trent to hold drop-in session in North Warwickshire

Tuesday 14th February

Severn Trent is to hold a drop-in session to meet members of the community in Nether Whitacre ahead of work to replace water pipes in the village.

The company will invite local people to discuss the plans that will see a new water pipe installed beneath Station Road to make sure residents have a reliable water supply for the future.

Clive Ingram, who is leading the project for Severn Trent, explained: “Sometimes, as our pipes get older, they can become prone to leaks and bursts which is why we’ve taken the decision to carry out this work now and to replace the pipe to prevent any problems occurring.

“We know how important it is for our customers to have access to water at all times and this project will ensure they have a supply they can rely on for years to come.

“We’re working hard to minimise disruption to local people while we carry out the work and we’d invite everyone who wants to find out more to come and see us at the drop-in session.

”The community drop-in session will take place at Nether Whitacre Village Hall on Station Road from 4pm to 7pm on Wednesday 22 February.

Engineers from Severn Trent and their contractors Amey will be at the session to talk through the plans in more detail and answer any questions.

Clive added: “We want to cause as little impact as possible to local people while we complete this work and we’ll make sure we keep access for residents and businesses as clear as possible throughout the project."

The work is planned to start in the middle of March and should be complete by the end of June. A rolling temporary road closure will be in place on Station Road during the project to allow engineers to work safely, and a fully signposted diversion will be in place.
