So they have pipes that are 70 years old and replace 1% of pipes a year. So in effect some of these pipes could become 100 years old. Hopefully plastic pipes will last longer. Anyone who lives near the A320 Woking, Chertsey and Ashford will full well know just how bad the situation is.

Makes you wonder just how bad the other parts of the network are. You can generally tell as the road surface will collapse into the road. Took Affinity many years to admit to the issues on the A320. Hopefully Rydens Road is not this bad.
