Give your views on South East Water's £2m Wokingham projectBy Laura Herbert

South East Water is giving people the chance to feedback on the progress of its £2 million project to upgrade Wokingham’s water mains so far.
The nine-month scheme, which is reaching its halfway point, will upgrade 7.1km of the town’s water mains to ensure future supply and reduce the risk of bursts. The company is hosting a drop-in session at The Meeting Place at Wokingham Methodist Church, Rose Street, on Thursday, November 1.
James Smith, South East Water delivery manager, said: “We are delighted the project is progressing well and would like to thank the people of Wokingham for their patience and support during the first half of this project.
“We held an initial drop-in session shortly before work began back in July which we found very helpful. However, on a scheme like this it is important we continue to work with the community to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum. We would encourage people to come and have a chat with us about the work and we can update them on our plans for the second half of the work.”
The meeting takes places following the completion work in Wiltshire Road, while the project continues in Rose Street between its junctions with Wiltshire Road and Cross Street. Work is also underway in Oxford Road and Ellison Way.
The drop-in is between 4pm and 7pm. Visit www.southeastwater.co.uk/wokingham.
