MORE than three kilometres of water mains on the Isle of Wight are to be replaced in 2014 as part of a £1.8bn programme to upgrade water supplies in the south east by Southern Water.

The work will replace old iron mains and aims to prevent leaks and bursts, saving water and interruptions to supplies.

Between 2010 and 2015, the company has pledged to replace 256km of water mains across the region.

Senior project manager Steve Jones said: "Many of our water mains were built by the Victorians and some are starting to show their age."
