WORK has begun to replace two kilometres of water pipes in Cowley which could cause months of disruption.
Three Valleys Water are spending £300,000 on installing new more durable water pipes in the Church Lane area in Cowley, which they insist will be less likely to burst or leak.
The work starte earlier this week and is expected to continue until at least March, which could spell problems for residents and road users.
The company says it has been working closely with Hillingdon council to develop a traffic management plan, and will try to minimise the number of holes needed in roads and footpaths and avoid digging long trenches.
Jaspal Bhandal, project manager, said: "I would like to thank people in advance for their co-operation. We do understand that work of this nature does cause disruption but the end result will enable us to continue to deliver fresh tap water to our customers for years to come."
