Southern Water is making improvements to its Goldstone site in Hove which ensures continuous supply of high-quality drinking water to one of the company's six priorities for 2015-2020.

We are continuing to make good progress with refurbishment work, which is scheduled to be completed soon.

The next phase of improvements will involve replacing a section of pipe which carries waste produced from the treatment processes away from the site and into our wastewater network.

This essential work is due to start on Monday, August 1. During the project a section of Woodland Drive will be closed, except for access, from the roundabout at the junction with Goldstone Crescent to the traffic lights at the Nevill Road junction. This is for the safety of both residents and the workforce.

A small area of Hove Park on the Woodland Drive side will be barriered-off and closed, with the footpath diverted around it.It is anticipated that this phase of improvements will be finished in October.

Southern Water project manager Ivan Pena Martinez said: "We apologise for any inconvenience this essential work may cause and would like to thank people in advance for their patience and cooperation."

An information event was held earlier this month. Residents were invited to meet some of the project team (pictured) and ask any questions about this phase of improvements. 

The work will be completed in partnership with MGjv – a joint venture between Morrison Utility Services and Galliford Try.
