Work started in February, and will cover a distance of just over 1.5 miles.
While the construction work is taking place, we'll need to introduce rolling lane closures as we move from west to east along the A29 by-pass.
Two-way and four-way traffic lights will be in place, and these will be manually-operated during peak hours.
At times, the work will be under tarmac, sometimes up to 6 metres underground.
We’re aiming to complete the work by the end of the year and we’ll be using specialist tunnelling technology as much as possible, which means we don’t need to dig open trenches, minimising disruption.
Southern Water Project Manager Mike Yung-hok said: “We understand the work will cause some disruption. We’d like to assure road users we’ll be doing all we can to minimise this and are looking at working extended hours to limit the length of time we'll need. We’d like to say thanks in advance for your patience.”

We are working 7-days-a-week to get this work finished.
Lights are monitored and manned all day.
Additional signage is set out to help motorists.
We're constantly monitoring the site to see if there's anything more we can to to ease disruption
We're sorry for the hold-ups.
