The work to lay new drainage from Aldringham Lane to the Horse Pond will start on March 2nd 2020. The duration will be 12 weeks and the works will be carried out in three separate phases with traffic signals on the main road and a road closure on the side road (Aldringham Lane).
Installing deep drainage in the proximity of existing buried services is specialist work and there is likely to be some disruption. However the end result should justify this and any disruption will be kept to a minimum
The success of the work relies on the completion of measures implemented upstream on the fields (North of Chandlers Way) and until these measures are agreed and completed there is the possibility of further flooding, or more likely blockages and silting up.
