West Park Road, Copthorne mains replacement 

We’re investing in an important water mains renewal project along West Park Road to secure safe and reliable drinking water supplies for homes and businesses.

The current water mains, which date back to the 1930’s, have now reached the end of their operational life. The new water mains will provide secure safe and reliable drinking water supplies for homes and businesses. We are also taking this opportunity to upsize the existing main from 6” to 8” to accommodate the redevelopment of Haskins Garden Centre Snowhill.

The project will involve laying approximately 3.7km of new main along West Park Road between the junctions of the B2037 and the A22. Our Keeping your water flowing booklet explains the four stages needed to lay a water main and answers some key questions you may have.
