As part of an ongoing programme to improve the water supply network South East Water are planning to install a number of new water mains across Ashford.
The £1.3 million project will involve the installation of new equipment and water pipes, which will help us to increase the amount of water they can pump through their extensive network of underground pipes and better control the flow of water.
It will also ensure they can continue to maintain water pressure to the area as the Chilmington Green development is built.
South East Water are still shaping our plans, but work will take place in the following roads; A28 Chart Road, Chilmington Green Road, Evergreen Way, Loudon Way, Sir John Fogge Avenue and Sweet Bay Crescent.
Work is due to start in October and last for 10 months.
Drop in information session
Sout Eat Water’s project team will be holding a drop-in session for local businesses and residents to find out more about the scheme and answer any concerns you may have.
This will take place between 5pm and 7pm at Godinton Village Hall, Loudon Way, Ashford, TN23 3JJ on Thursday 27 September.
To keep motorists, pedestrians and their staff safe, a mixture of road closures and temporary traffic lights will be used throughout the works, and will be agreed with Kent Highways before work starts.
If you have any concerns during working hours then their contractor, Clancy Docwra, will happily answer any questions on site. If you would like to speak to South East Water direct please call our Customer Technical Centre on 0333 000 1100.
