Roadworks expected in Kilburn as water pipes repaired

After five bursts over three years Thames Water begin eight-months of works

THAMES Water has announced plans to invest �2 million repairing mains pipes in Kilburn that have burst five times in the last three years.

Nearly 1,000m of pipes around Kilburn High Road will be relined between March 28 and November.

The company has warned customers could experience lower pressure than normal but the supply would not be cut off.

The first phase will see work carried out between Kilburn Park Road and Coventry Road with a second phase starting in Messina Avenue.

Lawrence Gosden, Thames Water’s head of capital delivery, said: “We have had five had five bursts in this section of main pipe so it is essential to get relined to prevent such disruptions to our customers in future.

“We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”
