Southern Water works - Fareham Road Wickham

Southern Water will be carrying out essential works in Fareham Road Wickham during January and February 2018

Fareham Road, Wickham: Installation of Wastewater Monitoring Equipment

Further to the survey work undertaken, Southern Water need to install some monitoring equipment in the sewer under Fareham Road, Wickham, together with a small control kiosk located on the footpath; to enable them to deliver their customer promise to effectively remove wastewater.  To do this they need to check that the sewers are working as they should be.

How will this impact me?

BTU will be carrying out this work commencing 10 January 2018. It will be completed in three stages, according to the following schedule:

Install a base and kiosk on the footpath

Weds - Fri 10 - 12 January 2018

Install ducting from the kiosk to the manhole

Mon - Fri 5 - 9 February 2018

Install monitoring equipment in manhole

Sun 11 February and Sun 18 February 2018

In order to install ducting, a  narrow trench will be excavated and therefore one lane of the carriageway will be closed.  Traffic will be managed using two-way traffic lights and the work will be carried out between 19.00 - 06.00hrs to help minimise disruption to local residents.

In the interest of safety, Fareham Road, near Mole Valley Stores will be closed on two Sundays to install the equipment. This will be carried out between 18.30 - 06.00hrs.  A diversion route will be in place which you can download on the right of this page. Access to properties and adjacent roads will be maintained.

Work of this nature will inevitably create some noise; however, everything will be done to minimise disruption to nearby residents and the local community.

Where do I find more information?
