West Sussex County council are going to fund a scheme which will improve the drainage system in Twineham.
The scheme which is estimated to cost £21,600 saw works commence yesterday on Hickstead Lane. Damaged pipes will be replaced as part of the works and gullies and ditches are due for an overhaul in Bolney Chapel Road and on Twineham Lane.
It is estimated that the works will take three weeks to complete, dependant on weather, and will be carried out during normal working hours.
While the work is ongoing, a temporary traffic management system will be in place, but if possible this will be removed at the end of the working day to allow traffic to flow freely.
Sewers and drainage pipes need regular maintenance so that waste matter can flow freely. It is however an unfortunate fact, that most homeowners rarely look at the condition of the drain that runs from their home into the sewer system, until they have a problem. It’s only then that they call drain maintenance specialists to investigate further.
If you live in a large city like London, you need to make sure that you have the contact details of a professional drain maintenance company who will be able to attend any problem 24/7.
