Thames Water 'could be given deadline' over sewer works in Victoria Road, Surbiton
Kingston Council leader and Surbiton councillor Liz Green said: “I think we do need to do that and I think we also need to bear in mind the Christmas element. I think that that is quite likely.”
She added: “We asked them to start it late, because of the Surbiton Festival.”
The water company said workers had removed concrete by hand from a 12-metre stretch of sewer pipe in the last four weeks.
Chairman of Surbiton Business Community, Andy Bacon, said: “The sewer is obviously a real disruption. I have got a sympathy for the businesses directly affected.
“From a wider business community, we don’t want to tar the whole of Surbiton with that brush. Surbiton is not dead.
“It would appear that the site is well resourced and I would hope that the works are progressing as fast as possible.”
