Bray £1.2m water main works spark motorist delay warnings

Drivers are warned to expect months of disruption as work on a £1.2m new water main in Berkshire gets under way.

Temporary traffic lights have been installed on Windsor Road in Bray where works are due to start later before heading along Upper Bray Road.

The first phase of works are expected to be complete in November, with the second phase starting in spring.

South East Water said the water main was needed to ensure it can continue to supply safe drinking water in the area.

Spokesman James Smith said the firm had "worked hard" to minimise disruption in the area during the works.

Mr Smith added: "We appreciate that the traffic lights we need to put up to keep our workforce and the public safe will have an impact.

"I would therefore like to thank the community and commuters for their patience and apologise for any inconvenience."

South East Water has said homes and businesses in the area will still be accessible.

The second phase of works will see the new water main laid from Braywick roundabout to Bray Water Treatment works in Monkey Island Lane.
