More leaks

For several weeks clean water has been running out of the road where Norwood Road meets Robson Road. Eventually Thames Water started the repair on 29th October and say its due to be completed on Friday 2ndNovember. In the meantime traffic cannot turn right out of Robson Road onto Norwood Road and nor can traffic turn right into Robson Road from Knights Hill.

Water is also leaking out of Norwood Road at the junction of Avenue Park Road since the summer. Councillors have chased up Thames Water several times – the repair will involve a road closure and be carried out at night ( ref 5011 577 836)  – but no repair date has been set yet.
It is clear that despite the fine imposed by OFWAT this summer Thames Water are still struggling to reduce leaks:  https://www.ofwat.gov.uk/pn34-18-ofwat-confirms-package-payments-penalties-thames-water-following-leakage-failures/

With winter coming there will be more leaks and more icy trips & slips. Leaks can be reported 24/7 on 0800 714 614 or use the Thames Water online form: https://www.thameswater.co.uk/help-and-advice/Report-a-problem/Report-a-problem
