Road set to reopen two months early

20 August, 2019

Sewer works in Aylesham Road are progressing well, says Southern Water, and it’s expecting to reopen the road ahead of Aylesham carnival in September.

Letters pushed through residents’ doors by Southern Water in Snowdown and parts of Aylesham this week say good progress is being made with the project – which includes a new pumping station and pipeline – thanks to alternative construction techniques in laying the pipes.

Southern Water’s project manager Nigel Hawken says in the letter: “We remain on schedule to complete all major construction by the end of 2019 and for the new system to be operational by February 2020.

“We acknowledge the closure of Aylesham Road has caused inconvenience for some residents, particularly from Snowdown and we’re grateful for your support and understanding.”

When work started in June, Southern Water had expected Aylesham Road to remain closed until November.

If you have any queries or concerns, please feel free to call Southern Water on 0330 303 0368 quoting project reference 639640, or visit the MGJV site office in Spinney Lane, Aylesham and ask for the duty site manager.
