Thames Water – Proposed works Brook Street/Drayton Road and High Street

Published: 03 September 2019

Thames Water has finished the trial holes and the only outstanding matter is some jetting and camera survey of some of the Drayton Road pipes. Applications have been made to the County Council for the relevant road closures, and the construction pack of drawings sent to the contractor. At the time of writing, Thames Water has a preferred starting date of October. They will be upgrading two sections of pipe. The first phase of the works will be approximately from Chapel Lane to Ginge Brook, and the second phase from Ginge Brook towards the Drayton Road. This second phase is not likely to commence until the new year. Similarly any works in the High Street will not take place until 2020. Timings will, however, be dependent on their contractors and obtaining the necessary orders for the road closures.
