New water main for Whitehouse Lane, Waldron

The new pipeline replaces an old and unreliable main that has suffered a number of bursts resulting in local people not receiving any water or suffering low pressure.

Construction will now start on Monday 26 November, two weeks later than earlier advised, due to East Sussex Highways bridge work at Tanyard Hill taking longer to complete. Work is expected to take approximately eight weeks and will take place during normal working hours, although there may be some activities at weekends. As a safety precaution for pedestrians, motorists and our contractor we need to close Whitehouse Lane to through traffic only from the junction of Rocks Lane. The diversion route, which has been agreed in conjunction with the East Sussex County Council Highways department, will be clearly signed. Access to homes and businesses will be maintained at all times. However normal access routes may need to be changed as the scheme progresses depending on where the roadworks are in relation to property entrances.

Our contractor is Clancy Docwra and if you have any concerns during the work staff on site will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have. If you would like to speak to South East Water direct please call our Customer Technical Centre on 0333 000 1100.
