As part of an ongoing programme to improve our water network, we are undertaking a scheme to reinforce the existing water mains within Elstead village.

This involves installing approximately 280 metres of new water main in Thursley Road and 790 metres in Milford Road.

We held a customer information event about this project on Thursday 5 August. A copy of the presentation can be found here.

To keep the public and our workforce safe, there will be a series of temporary traffic lights in place for the duration of the works. Access to homes and businesses will be maintained at all times. However, our workforce will liaise with you if access is to be restricted at any time.

Work started on 6 September 2021 and it is expected to take approximately 22 weeks to complete. Works will commence within Milford Road and upon completion of that section our workforce will move straight into Thursley Road.

If you have any concerns during the work, the staff on site will be happy to speak with you. If you would like to speak to South East Water direct please call our Customer Technical Centre on 0333 000 1100.

We’re really sorry for disruption caused and would like to thank residents for their understanding while we carry out this vital work.

Project updates

29 November 2021

We're continuing to make progress along Milford Road and more than 500 metres of new water main has been installed to date.

17 November 2021

Our workforce is continuing to install new pipe along Milford Road with more than 400 metres of water main installed so far.

Due to the narrow nature of the road, and the machinery required to operate in such narrow conditions, we are unfortunately slightly behind our planned schedule.

We had hoped to begin working in Thursley Road by December, however, this section will now not begin until January at the earliest.

Our team will continue laying pipe in Milford Road into December and there will be a short break over the festive period where no works take place and all traffic management will be removed. This is to minimise disruption to the local community.

19 October 2021

We've continued to make good progress laying new pipe in Milford Road. Our workforce has installed more than 165 metres of water main so far. Temporary traffic lights are in operation to protect the public and we are very sorry for any disruption these may cause.

27 September 2021

Our workforce has started installing the new pipe and 75 metres has been laid so far. We have also carried out the first connection to our existing water network.
