Water Mains Renewals: Grove End, Bagshot

What are we doing?

Affinity Water will be renewing 1.1km of water main along London Road (A30), Grove End, Bagshot, that has reached the end of it’s useful life and is likely to burst regularly causing disruption to our customers water supply and road users.

Affinity Water and our delivery partner Morrison Utility Services will be observing social distancing between themselves in the workspace and with members of the public. It has been agreed with Surrey County Council that this an opportune time to carry out this work on a usually very busy road while the current travel restrictions are in place.

We will initially carry out survey works to confirm the route and map out existing utility services deep underground and lay the new main during this time.

We are working closely with Surrey County Council to start this work earlier than planned, whilst there is reduced traffic, to ensure we minimise disruption as much as possible.

Our teams on the ground will be operating under government guidelines on social distancing with the appropriate PPE to make sure they are kept safe during the Coronavirus outbreak.

 

Reasons for doing Essential works

  • To upgrade our customers network, avoiding a failing network causing interruption to supply – across dwellings and commercial businesses, first class customer service.
  • High propensity to burst.
  • To mitigate against causing further unplanned interruption to customers and wider community.
  • Better for the environment – no interruptions brings less likelihood of leaks, therefore sustainable future generations for saving water.
  • Covid-19, we are adhering to safe working practices between themselves and members of the public.

 

When will the works take place?

The work starts 1st May 2020 and will continue through June working seven days a week to ensure completion at the earliest time. Temporary traffic lights will be used throughout and the northbound slip road from A322 onto A30 will be closed 1st June 2020 for approximately 2 weeks for the safety of our team and the road users.
