A £2M project to upgrade Wokingham's water mains start next month.

South East Water will replace 7.1km of water mains in the town centre including Station Road, Rose Street, Broad Street and Shute End.

The scheme starts in London Road and Station Road on July 23 and the whole project is due for completion by spring 2013.

Residents and businesses can find out more at a drop-in session on July 3 in the Jubilee Room of Wokingham Town Hall in Market Place, Wokingham, from 9am-6pm.

In Station Road, the road closure will be between the Molly Millar Public House and the junction of Shute End.

Wokingham railway station will remain open with access from the western end of Station Road at the mini roundabout.

The diversion route will take drivers along Reading Road, B3030 Kings Street Lane, Bearwood Road and the B3349 Barkham Road.

In London Road, there will be temporary two-way traffic lights between the junctions of Clay Lane and Seaford Road.
