Anglian Water begin work to support future growth in Daventry
13 July 2021
Anglian Water’s team of expert engineers have this week begun essential work on a £2million project to install 2km of new water pipes in Daventry in order to support future growth in the area.
The work, which is expected to be completed by the end of February 2022, will see more than 2km of water main along Western Avenue to ensure thousands of customers can continue to use their taps without a second thought.
Dodie Honisett, Project Manager for Anglian Water, said: “Our region is one of the fastest-growing areas in the country, and by 2031, household numbers are predicted to increase by 34%. This means that we need to invest in schemes across our region to meet this increasing demand.
“This £2million project will enable us to supply water to residents of new developments planned in the area, while maintaining water pressures to our existing customers in the area, securing supplies for many years to come.”
To ensure the safety of both staff and local road users, road closures will be in place on the A45 Layby, London Road, and Western Avenue. However, a diversion route will be in place throughout the scheme and access will be maintained for residents and businesses.
“In order to minimise disruption as much as we possibly can, rolling closures will be in place along London Road and Western Avenue as work progresses to avoid closing the whole road. Our teams will also be working seven days a week in certain areas to get the work completed as quickly as they can,” Dodie continued.
