South East Water has completed a £1.1 million project to replace 1.4km of 80 year old pipeline in Lower Road and along the A2, Teynham.
After completing the first phase six-weeks ahead of schedule last year, the second phase of work started on 2 January and the project continued to progress throughout the year without interruption to complete the work on time.
The work took place along the A2 between Station Road and Claxfield Road and the company worked in 100 metre sections to reduce the disruption to motorists and pedestrians.
Jeremy Dufour, South East Water Project Manager, said: “We are very pleased to say that our pipeline upgrade project along the A2 is now complete and we have secured the drinking water supply to the area for many years to come.
“The old, unreliable, burst-prone water main has now been replaced with a larger, plastic water pipe has also added more flexibility to how we move water around our network.
“I’m really thankful to all local residents and motorists who have shown great patience with us for the duration of the project that started last year.
“We would love to hear the feedback of local residents, motorists and pedestrians who may have encountered our work by filling out a form on our dedicated webpage at: https://corporate.southeastwater.co.uk/teynham”
The project forms part of South East Water’s £424 million investment into its network between 2015 and 2020 with an additional £433 million planned from 2020 to 2025.
