Road closed for pipe repairs

THE final phase of work to replace a Victorian water main between Brading and St Helens started this week.

Brading High Street will be affected for the next two weeks, to the north of the junction with Quay Lane, according to Southern Water.

A 30 metre section of road has been closed to traffic, with a diversion is in place.

Work will then progress to a section between the High Street and St Mary's Road, via St Mary's Court.

Access will be maintained for residents and businesses throughout the four weeks it takes to complete the work.

The final section on Quay Lane is scheduled to finish by the end of July, during which 700 metre of new piping will be installed. Access for residents and businesses will continue.

Project manager Peter Simmons said: "I’d like to thank customers for their continued patience while we carry out this essential scheme. We'll be in the area for a few weeks but the benefits — a more reliable supply of water to customers’ taps — will be long term."

The work will be carried out by the contractor Clancy Docwra,.

When these sort of things happen it would be really helpful for people not familiar with location/road names - if a simple map could be appended to the article showing where the road is closed and where the diversion is
