Many Haddenham residents will have received a letter from Thames Water in the last week or two, outlining their need to close parts of Station Road for work to install new water pipes. As discussions on our Facebook page have shown, not all correspondence from Thames Water can be relied upon for accuracy, and Peter Jeffery has taken on the task of seeking greater clarity. Here's his findings.
Work to install new water pipes was due to start on Friday 17th November. This has now been deferred until Monday 4th December. There will be severe disruption in the Station Road/Church End area of Haddenham, which could well last until Friday 26th January (but with a break over the Christmas period).
The recent letter from Thames Water headed "Improving our water pipes" advised that work was to be carried out substituting new larger, stronger plastic pipes for the old ones.
The work is to result in the closure of sections of Station Road between Townside and Gibson Lane, from Friday 17th November to Friday 22nd December. There will also be traffic lights in operation at times at various locations in Station Road/Church End between the bottom of Townside and the footpath up to the lychgate.
Thames Water advises that between Saturday 23rd December and Monday 1st January "all traffic management will be removed".
The road will then be closed in Church End between the War Memorial and the footpath to the lychgate from Tuesday 2nd January to Friday 26th January.
Thames Water stated that work is also to be done in Aston Road. This is erroneous as the plan they have used in their letter has been taken from Google maps where some of the roads in Church End are incorrectly shown as "Aston Road" and "The Paddocks".
