Ryde Town Council representatives and other organisations met with Southern Water yesterday for a site visit of the works at Appley. Please see the below update from Southern Water
We are pleased to share that the repairs to the collapsed sewer at Appley have been completed. The sewer is now relined and all evidence of the collapse has been removed.
Further investigations however, have shown the need to line additional sections of the sewer, in order to ensure that another collapse doesn’t occur. This will see Southern Water invest an extra £1million into Ryde’s infrastructure and future proof the sewer, allowing wastewater from the area to flow through the pipe again, rather than the temporary over pumping system.
These additional works will begin imminently along North Walk and it is anticipate that they will be completed in early 2022. Disruption will be minimal and visitors to this area will see an over pumping pipe similar to the one currently in situ, for the duration of the works. Vehicular and pedestrian access will be maintained and the majority of parking spaces will remain available for use.
Following the completion of the additional works, Southern Water will begin reinstatement of the area which will see the over pumping system removed, roads repaired and the area returned to its former condition.
Southern Water will be sharing an overview of the complexities of the repair on the information board; located along Garden Walk; for those interested in learning more about the challenges they’ve overcome this year.
Southern Water would like to thank you for your patience and understanding during these works.
