High Street, Taunton - water works start on Monday
8:00am Saturday 15th September 2012 in News
IT will be business as usual when Wessex Water starts work in Taunton's High Street on Monday, September 17.
The work is part of the firm's ongoing Operation Clean and Clear scheme to upgrade 50 miles of water mains by 2014.
Last month, project managers for the scheme invited business owners to attend a drop-in session to find out more about what the work in High Street would involve.
Phil Luxton, Wessex Water’s project manager for the scheme, said: “It was very important to us that we met with local businesses to discuss what the work would involve.
"It also provided a great opportunity for us to plan a schedule of works with appropriate dates to help reduce the impact on local businesses."
The work which is expected to be completed by mid- November will see the firm working in sections to ensure access to shops and properties is maintained.
Water improvements are also continuing in other areas of the town including Greenway Road, Priorswood Road and Lisieux Way
