Upgrading the sewer network in Battle – update from Southern Water

As you may be aware we’re installing a new pipeline in this area. We’re converting the existing Netherfield Treatment Works into a pumping station. We’ll transfer wastewater from the Netherfield Treatment Works to the Battle Treatment Works, via its sewer network, where it can be treated to a higher standard before being discharged to the environment.

The pipeline has now been installed along Netherfield Road from Darvel Down. We’re now ready to start work to install the pipeline from Wattle’s Wish and along Virgins Lane.

We’ll start work to install the pipeline from Wattle’s Wish along Virgins Lane on Monday 11 March 2024 for a period of about 10 weeks. We’ll begin by installing the pipeline from Wattle’s Wish under the London Road before moving along Virgins Lane.

Please see the letter below that we have sent to all customers in the area. This contains information, and a map, showing diversions and explaining traffic management that will be in place.
