Hi Again this week everything is going to plan, we are continuing with the large manholes next to Ludlaw Avenue and laying pipes. We've also been stripping off top soil between Whitehouse Lane and the main site ready to link the access. The drainage will continue next week crossing the footpath between Ludlaw Avenue and Beach Road. For public safety we will need to close the footpath from Ludlaw Avenue to Beach Road and re-open the footpath from Whitecliff Close to maintain public access. Whitehouse Lane will remain open, however, there will be a manned crossing point for site vehicles. Simon

Hi Everyone Thanks to Darren who has provided the information for this update: This week, we have continued with the excavation of the new basin and it is currently around 80% complete. Next week we will start installing the associated drainage before we put down the topsoil and seed, which will start the following week. We have managed to retain and reuse most of the excavated material from the basin to reprofile part of the land within the grounds of Cleveland Lodge. This equates to approximately 200 wagon loads which would have otherwise been taken off site and disposed of. Work is also progressing well in the grass verge in Farm Garth where we are installing the large diameter drainage pipes. We expect this work to reach Roseberry Crescent at some point next week and the rolling road closure will begin heading towards Newton Road. As we near the road, it is likely that we will start to encounter various underground services so this may slow our progress a little. I've attached a couple of photos of the new basin. Have a nice weekend Tony

Good afternoon everyone, we just wanted to provide you with an update as you will have realised our works are nearing completion. This project involved replacing the failing pumping main pipe from Escomb Pumping Station to Etherley Moor.  This pipe has suffered several bursts since 2006 due to pipe’s age and condition. The new pipeline route is just under 1 mile (1.4km) in length and follows the existing Public footpath, which is now in situ and in service. We have a few outstanding things to complete over the next week or so, which involve erecting fencing around the land we occupied for the site compound and tidying of the area. Ill follow this up with a further update once we have completed the finishing touches.  We would like to thank everyone for their patience during our works. Thanks Sarah Vickers

Good afternoon   Thanks for your patience and assistance to allow the plant to be installed at Ramshaw this week. It was a tight squeeze in areas to get the crane and transport in but it all went very well. In addition we have now installed the new chemical tanks to the 3 sites We are currently on programme and will keep you updated on a regular basis. Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Everyone Thanks again to Bobby for the information for this progress update. We have now fully lined the twin pipes under Station Road and in the same area we continue to make progress on Manholes 3 and 4, where we are removing shoring/benching works. The work on the drainage works within the park area is also ongoing and we are now working on manhole 6 here. This week and next we will be continuing with the work on the footpath and fishing jetty. We will also be continuing with the planting works by the Lakeside. I've attached a few pictures taken this week of our progress. Have a nice weekend Tony

Hi Again we have progressed well this week, laying almost 100m of large diameter pipes and building a manhole. We've also progressed work in Whitehouse Primary school field and started forming an access to the main site.  Next week we'll continue with the large manholes and pipes behind Ludlaw Avenue. Simon

Hi Everyone I know we finished our work in your area quite some time ago, but we will be back next week! We need to return to complete landscaping remedial works so you may notice some of our guys around. In the grassed area between Laburnum Road and Primrose Crescent we will be doing some remedial works for 2/3 days from Tuesday 23 April 2019. In Roker Park we will also be doing some work in what used to be the Rose Garden where we will basically do some tidying and re-seeding. This will also take 2/3 days. We don't expect this work to impact on nearby residents. From week commencing 6 May 2019 we will then return to St Peters where we will carry out a repair on the tank and also remove a fence. If you have any questions please get in touch. Thanks Tony
