Purley mains replacement

The Bridle Road and Russell Hill mains replacement programme

Starting in May 2021 we are investing in an important water mains renewal programme in Purley.

The current water mains (some dating back to the 1900s) are no longer sufficient size and are beginning to reach the maximum operating capacity, due to the amount of new developments in the area.

The programme will involve laying approximately 325m of new main along The Bridle Road, followed by 800m along Russell Hill and renewing the services to each individual property. Each work site will require us to put traffic management systems in place and Bridle Road will require a temporary road closure to keep residents, motorists and our workforce safe. Information boards will be visible in the affected areas prior to the works being implemented.

This page will be regularly updated below as the programme is started.

Our Keeping your water flowing booklet explains the four stages needed to lay a water main and answers some key questions you may have.
