When will the work be completed?

The contractual completion date for the Newark project is the end of March 2020. 

With lots more to be done on a construction project of this type it’s obviously hard for Severn Trent Water to be absolutely certain on completion the date, but they're working really hard to get everything done early, currently targeting completion of construction for early Autumn 2019.
