New water pipe for Hook

Published at 6:00am 8th January 2018. (Updated at 6:07am 8th January 2018)

From today a new water pipe is being laid in Hook.

South East Water will begin work on the new 1.4 kilometre-long pipe in Griffin Way South between Four Acre Coppice and Station Road. 

The scheme was postponed last year following a consultation on the company’s original proposal to lay the pipe in Station Road.

During this time the project team worked to review plans to reduce disruption.

Matthew Cooper, Project Manager at South East Water, said: “While our work to install new pipelines is essential to keep taps running, we were keen to work with the community to ensure our scheme causes as little disruption as possible.

“Following our project review we will now lay the new water main in Griffin Way South with work taking about 27 weeks to complete.

“I would like to thank the residents and businesses of Hook in advance for their patience and offer reassurance that our team will be working to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.”

Temporary traffic lights will be used to guide motorists safely around the construction site. 



This scheme forms part of the company’s £424 million investment programme between 2015 and 2020.
