WORK to alleviate flooding in Stratford begins on Monday (September 4).
Severn Trent will get to work on the A439 Warwick Road to install a new surface water sewer costing £430,000.
The company says that diverting the surface water that runs off the roads and drains through the grounds of The Welcombe Hotel and golf course will help to ensure the local sewer network is operating within capacity and reduce the risk of flooding issues for those living in the area.
Severn Trent spokesperson Shannon Currall continued: “Challenges from climate change are putting pressure on our surface water network and can lead to issues such as sewer flooding which we know can be really distressing.
“This is why we’re working hard to identify locations where we’ve had reports of these issues and are building additional capacity into our surface water sewers to help ease the pressure on the network.”
The works are expected to be completed by November 9. To help keep traffic moving, two-way traffic lights will be in place on the A439 for the duration.
Shannon added: “We always aim to minimise any disruption from our works and keep traffic flowing while we work. Roadworks can definitely be frustrating and inconvenient but help to keep our workforce and other road users safe, and we would like to thank everyone in advance for their patience while we make these essential network upgrades.”
