A MILLION pound project to replace nearly four miles of water mains in Manea started yesterday.
The Anglian Water project, which aims to prevent supply interruptions and leaks in the area, is expected to take until the summer to complete.
Antony Innes, from Anglian Water, said: “This is an important project for the area and will help make sure our customers’ water supplies are protected for the future.
“Clearly, a project of this scale is going to cause some disruption to residents, as junctions and roads will be partially closed during the scheme.
“We’re sorry for the impact this will have but hopefully residents will understand that we are working to keep this inconvenience to a minimum and once completed the work will really be a benefit for the area.”

Rather than digging up more than 6,000 metres of roads in the area Anglian Water plans to work in separate phases and use ‘trenchless’ working techniques.
The water supply for properties along the route of the new mains will be interrupted briefly when their service is swapped to the new mains.
