Services Parallel and west of  M5

Key Dimensions

Gas Pipeline
14 ins high pressure

Water Main

Proposed Replacement:
Both will probably have to be lowered  at some point on both routes

Background Information

The two pipelines run parallel with and just to the west of the M5. Both post date the infilling of the canal in this area.

It is likely that both will need to be lowered to a significant degree at the point where the navigation is restored even if the river channel is used due to the lowering if the navigation to provide headroom under the M5.

This is likely to be costly but should not pose major engineering problems.

Replacement Structure

Drop pipeline levels.
