Cost for new sewage connection

Recommended Posts

I have had a quote for connection to the sewer in front of my plot.

The sewer is in the road about 3.5m from my boundary, and has an invert of 1.5m below the road level.

There will need to be a lane closure and 2 way traffic lights.

The company have quoted £8k for the connection and drainage to my boundary.

How does that sound?

Start breaking it down in your head, we used to pay £600 a day for traffic management for lights and signage for a single lane closure.

I think that's about right. Mine was £8k

- in London, 4 bay parking suspensions

- 3 meters from boundary

- 2 meter deep invert on the road

- no road closure, but some traffic management as the connection was in the middle of the road.

- the fee was excluding the Section 50 notice to Highways fee (£450) and Section 106 to Thames Water (£500)

Have you got space for a treatment plant? Cost would be about half that.

Not crazy but with that sort of figure I would get 3 quotes.

I've had two quotes so far for 6 metres across private road, dig approx 1 metre deep. £6k and £7k, how can they demand such amount. It seems an activity to almost print money. I thought it would be a £3k job with plenty of profit to go around.
