Improvements in your area

We're currently carrying out the following long-term improvements.

Protecting water supplies from Seven Sisters Road to Myddleton Avenue

Since 19 October 2020, we’ve been working hard to rehabilitate 600m of our 36-inch water mains between Seven Sisters Road and Finsbury Park Road in Hackney, London. We’re using a technique called ‘relining’ which involves pulling 600m of new pipework through the current pipe to reline it.

We recently sent customers living in affected areas letter informing of a delay to our work and outlining the improvements we're making, along with how we'll be working to minimise disruption.

Upgrading Beckton Sewage Treatment Works

We’re upgrading the site to ensure it can treat the sewage of up to 4.4 million customers and accommodate flows from the Thames Tideway Tunnel, which is due for completion in 2024.

We expect the work to start in March 2021 and to be completed by the end of March 2023.

How will the work affect me?

We don’t expect any of the work to affect customers as it will all be inside the site and most of it will be away from the public boundaries.

There may be some increased site traffic into the site and along Eric Clarke Lane. We'll manage this via the A14 and Jenkins Lane.

How can I learn more?

Look at our information pack for more details. We’ll write to keep businesses and residents in the area updated with any changes to our work.
