Water infrastructure improvement works are beginning this week in Twyford, near Reading, and Spalding in Lincolnshire.
Anglian Water will tomorrow begin work on a £270,000, 16 week scheme to renew 34m of sewer in Spalding. The sewer is 3.5m below ground, and “has not been working as efficiently as it should”, Anglian Water said.
Thames Water began work yesterday in Twyford to replace a water main that has burst six times in the past six months. The bursts have caused damage to a road and several properties.
The £800,000 project will take eight weeks. A 1.2km section of the 100mm diameter pipe will be replaced.
