Subject: Emergency Utility Works; Church Lane, Haslemere (Thames Water)
For your information can I advise you of emergency works
being carried out on Church Lane, Haslemere (outside Haslemere Health Centre).
Thames Water need to repair a water leak in the
carriageway. The traffic management that is placed is a Road Closure and the
estimated end date is the 20/08/2019.
I hope you find this information useful.

Thames Water needs to replace the large diameter water pipe (Trunk Main) which feeds all the other smaller pipe to prevent leaks in the future. This large water pipe provides water to a huge area in Haslemere so it’s essential that it’s replaced.
Tennyson’s Lane will be closed from the junction with Scotland Lane to the junction with Chase Lane. A road closure is required as Tennyson’s Lane is far too narrow for any other alternative form of traffic management. They will also be carrying out works on Scotland Lane (close to the junction) so there will be Multi-Way Signals as well. The works are due to take place between 27/05/2019-07/07/2019.
I have been informed that Thames Water are to liaise with Waverley Borough Council to address waste refuse collections.
Works started today to resolve the recurring flooding problem under Sturt Road railway bridge, and associated road surface deterioration due to constant subsurface water saturation.
Project started as programmed end of 2016, but discovered a number of water leaks in Thames water pipes under this section of road, so project halted until repairs carried out. Project then had to be rescheduled on program list, resulting in delay.
Work that started today = hand digging out trench as electricity and gas mains pipes to be avoided. Aim to lay new 150 mm pipe under Sturt Road to connect existing gullies, so that runoff is removed from the road.
Pipe will be laid and concreted in tomorrow, 16/03/2017. Road resurfaced 17/03/2017.
Road will be closed with diversions in place until 18/03/2017- but still full access to Haslemere Sports Centre and Sturt Road businesses.
I have organised for a vegetation gang to come in while the road is closed to cut back vegetation, and clear mud and debris from the verges.
Thames Water, following recent problems, are to improve their water supply network. In addition to replacing existing pipe work with new polyethylene pipes to improve water pressures and reduce leakage risk, there is a necessity to increase the existing pipe size significantly because of supply / demand problems in the local area especially during the hotter months which if not addressed may leave residents with reduced water pressure supply.
Work will start on 17th February 2017 and is anticipated to last around 5 weeks. Where possible extended working hours including weekends will be used to expedite the completion of the project.
