Southern Water install large overland pipe in Old Portsmouth for ‘urgent’ maintenance – causing closure of Pembroke Road

An enormous pipe has been installed in Old Portsmouth as Southern Water carries out ‘urgent’ maintenance.

Southern Water contractors are piecing together the structure – which stretches from near the Pier Road pumping station in Southsea to just outside the Royal Garrison Church where the pipe currently ends – as a temporary anti-flooding measure. The ‘urgent’ repairs follow a pipe bursting near the pumping station in May.

Parts of Pembroke Road and Gordon Road have been closed to facilitate the works, which are scheduled to finish before Victorious Festival.
