Severn Trent – Works on Hewell Road 1 – 3 June 2021

Message from Severn Trent
We’re improving your supply of wonderful water…
• We carried out some vital improvement work in your area in Summer 2019
• We were unable to abandon the old water main at the time due to engineering issues
• We plan to return to carry out a trial hole to see if we can abandon the old water main at a different point in the road.
Why we’ve been doing this work – We’re committed to making sure our customers receive a continuous supply of water now and in the future. So, we’re constantly checking the condition of our network and recognised that we needed to upgrade some of the water pipes in your area.
Important things to know – Work to renew a section of water main in Hewell Road started in Summer 2019. As part of this work, we needed to abandon the old section of water main. We were unable to do this at the time due to engineering difficulties with some of the valves at the junction with Sandhills Lane. We are now returning to see if we are able to complete the abandonment of the old water main by making a connection further along Hewell Road. Initially we need to determine if this location is suitable, by carrying out a trial hole to check the ground conditions and location of existing pipework. From the results of the trial hole, we will be able to determine if this is possible and if so, schedule in the work. Once we are at this stage, we will write to you again to advise of dates, durations and traffic management.
To allow us to carry out the trial hole quickly and safely we will have temporary two-way traffic lights in place, which will be manually controlled between 07:30hrs – 09:30hrs and 15:30hrs – 18:30hrs. This is to ensure your safety and the safety of our workforce. The approximate location of the trial hole is shown on the rear diagram, along with the expected duration and traffic management.
Please bear with us…
Although it is really important, we also know work on this scale can, at times, be inconvenient. Please rest assured that we and our contract partner Amey, will be doing everything we can to minimise disruption and get the work finished as quickly as we can.
Will my water supply be interrupted?
If we plan to interrupt your water supply during these works, we will let you know in advance.
