Thames Water to build new water pipeline in England
Thames Water will build a new pipeline to provide improved water supply network on the borders of Wiltshire and West Berkshire in England.
The new main will run 2.3km across fields from Bailey Hill Reservoir under the M4 motorway to Baydon water tower in Wiltshire.
The new pipe will provide security of supply during periods of peak demand, helping reduce the risk of interruptions to customers' water supplies.
A no-dig method, which minimizes the need for potentially disruptive hole-digging, will be used on part of the GBP1m project, which expected to be completed by the end of the year.
Baydon Tower supplies people to the east, including Membury and Hungerford Newtown in West Berkshire, while the village of Baydon, in Wiltshire, is supplied with water taken from boreholes at Ramsbury.
Thames Water project manager for the scheme Lawrence Adams said the scheme will help make the firm's water supply network more resilient, with the overall aim of providing a better, more reliable service for its customers in the area.
Wiltshire Council has also granted planning permission for the new pumping station building at Baydon Tower.
