Water supplies work in the pipeline

By ID Thursday 23 January 2014 Updated: 24/01 08:58

MORE than £160,000 is being invested to protect water supplies in Redditch.

Over the next three and a half months Severn Trent will be replacing 730 metres of old pipes with new ones - enough to stretch the length of 15 Olympic sized swimming pools.

The first part of the project has started in Greenlands Avenue and will at a later date take place in Auxerre Avenue, Studley Road and Woodrow North.

Jonathan Tait, from Severn Trent, said water supply should not be interrupted during the work but if it was residents would be given notice.

“A lot of the water pipes in the area have been serving the community for many years. This means they’ve become old and prone to bursting, which can interrupt our customers’ water supply,” he said.

“Temporary traffic lights will be put on the roads affected during the work. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to the community. However, our priority is to give the best service we can to our customers. The work will only be for a short time, but the benefits should be felt for years to come.”
