Rapid progress on a project to protect tap water supplies in Newnham, Hook, has seen work finish more than three weeks ahead of schedule.

South East Water has laid more than a kilometre of water main in the area to replace an ageing pipe which had come to the end of its working life.

Pipe was installed in Newnham Road, Newnham Lane, Crown Lane, Ridge Lane and Tylney Lane.

The vital project forms part of the company’s ongoing drive to improve its vast network of underground pipes.

Jeremy Dufour, Project Manager, said: “I’m pleased that we’ve been able to finish this project ahead of our original schedule.

“We know works like these can cause some disruption to the local community so we always make sure we work as quickly and safely as possible.

“I would like to thank everyone for their patience while we carried out this scheme and I know residents in the area will benefit from this brand new water main.”

South East Water constantly upgrades its vast network of underground pipes which spans more than 9,000 kilometres.
