You may have spotted lots of multui colored markings on the surface of Bentfield Road and wondered what was about to happen. The bad news is that Affinity Water will be carrying out site investigations on Bentfield Road during the second half of May ahead of the installation of a new water main between Stansted and Manuden. They plan to start the work on the project at the beginning of July so you need to be prepared for road closures for the duration of the project. The existing water main goes up Bentfield Causeway but they are also looking at the possibility of rerouting it around Bentfield Road, past Bentfield Green upto the pond and then across the fields to Manuden.
The contractor will be posting full details to all residents who are likely to be inconvenienced and they also hope to hold a drop in session where residents can seek further information.
