Work begins on £6.5m water pipe improvement

Work is beginning today on a £6.5million project to upgrade water pipes in Tewkesbury.

Severn Trent is starting work on replacing almost 1.6 miles of pipes beneath The Severn Ham to provide a more resilient water supply.

Work, which will begin in a field alongside Mythe Water Treatment Works, is expected to last until the end of November.

Severn Trent's Shannon Currall said: "We know it's still a difficult time for a lot of people right now, but making sure that our customers have a reliable supply of water is as important as ever.

"And the people of Tewkesbury understand just how important the water pipes under the Ham are - they supply the whole area with water."

No interruption to supplies is expected during the work with crossing points and alternative footpath routes in place at Severn Ham.

Temporary traffic control measures will be in place on Mythe Road and Quay Street when necessary.

"Our teams on site will be doing all that they can to minimise disruption during this work, and we'd like to thank everyone in advance, for both their patience and understanding," she said.

Severn Ham is a Site of Special Scientific Interest which is popular with walkers.
