Road Works Update from South East Water

Submitted on 22 January 2018 by Maria Horne

The latest update on South East Water’s work along Oathall Road, Haywards Heath can be found below.

Monday 19 February 2018

We have now successfully installed all of the new pipework along Oathall Road. Towards the end of last week we were carrying out tests on the new water mains, and are now awaiting the results to ensure that the new pipes are safe to place into supply.

Tonight we will be working on a connection at the junction of Oathall Road and Oathall Avenue, with the final three connections being carried out on Wednesday.

Once we have undertaken these connections, we will cut and cap the existing mains at the north end of Oathall Road and then transfer the remaining services onto the new mains. Upon completion of these, we will be looking to fully reinstate the road and clear site.

We currently anticipate that works will be complete next week, well ahead of programme.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and cooperation during this essential work.


Friday 26 January 2018

To date we have laid 66 metres of both the new 250mm and 125mm pipelines . We have also undertaken a number of trial holes to confirm the alignment of the new pipework as well as checking the location of other utilities within the road. We also carry out trial holes to check the position of our existing water mains, this helps us to confirm the connections of our new pipes into our existing network.

We will be looking to progress with back filling and reinstating the road surface where our new main is in place and will continue to excavate ready for the next section of pipework to be laid.

As per the last update, we will be working weekends from 27 January to help accelerate the works.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during these essential works.
