Thames Water proposed roadworks

Published: 14 February 2020

The Council are in correspondence with Thames Water regarding the proposed sewerage works which are due to take place on both the High Street and Drayton Road. The High Street works are scheduled to begin on 28th February (weather dependent) and will take a period of approximately 8 weeks. The works will be traffic light controlled and one lane will be kept open at all times.

The Drayton Road works will not (and indeed are not allowed) to start until the High Street works are completed. Council have been given a provisional start date of 25th May 2020 but this may change dependent on weather and the High Street works being completed. Council have also had confirmation from Thames Water that appropriate signage confirming the village and businesses are open as usual have been requested and further signage can be added during the works if required. Thames Water should be writing to people affected by the works and are keen to ensure works cause as little disruption as possible. They have confirmed that access to Chapel Lane and Ginge Brook will be maintained for residents, along with properties in close proximity to the works. This phase of work is due to last for 10 weeks.
