High Street Sewer Repaires - Update from Anglian Water

High Street Sewer Repaires - Update from Anglian Water

Response to Enquiry from PC:

With regards to the work on site, we are still in Hemingford Grey, as you are probably aware. The reason for this is because having dug down on the pipe, the job is somewhat more complicated than originally assessed. The main reason for this is the high water table, which means we need to continuously de-water the excavation to keep it safe. With this de-watering, it means we have had to install over pumps and ensure that the noise disruption is minimised for local residents.

We have also found that the sewer is more deep than expected, and additional safety trench support equipment has been required. I am very sorry for this delay and I would like to assure you that our teams are working hard on site to complete this working safely as quick as possible. This includes the use of vacuum excavation to speed up the process. We have forecast that we will be finished on site and the road re-opened this Friday the 28th January. I will keep you updated as we progress.
