Eversholt Street water main replacement work 2021
During 2021, from January until August the 16” water main at Eversholt Street was relined and replaced between Euston Road and Drummond Crescent. As part of the project, new monitoring chambers were built and specialised monitoring equipment installed.
These will be useful in the future for Thames Water, in providing information about the flow of water in the new main. Additionally, a pressure reducing valve at Wellesley Place was connected to the new water main which is a helpful piece of equipment for managing the flow of water.
Over the past year, the construction team encountered various challenges which slowed the programme timescale, but they were always treated with the utmost kindness and courtesy by the residents and businesses of Somers Town, which was greatly appreciated.
We were aware that the closing of one lane of Eversholt Street also caused a considerable amount of inconvenience to residents, businesses, the London Borough of Camden, Transport for London buses, taxis and motorists, as well as cyclists and pedestrians.
The whole team would like to thank you all for your tremendous patience and understanding during this challenging period – and for your support and advice too.
At some point in the future, the next section of the water main will need to be replaced. This will be a section from Drummond Crescent towards Oakley Square. However, no timescales or budget are yet in place, so this is a piece of work still in the planning stage.
