Hi   Following a review of the potential impact of the drawdown on water supply it has been decided to delay the start of the construction work until Spring 2023.  Although the project is delayed we are working hard to ensure that the proposed solution to upgrade the reservoir will be delivered in a timely manner. In the meantime seprate work will be carried out this Autumn to carry out maintenance activity on a seperate part of the reservoir. Thanks Glyn

Good Afternoon All,  The site team are making great progress, up to now the Trial hole work for confirmation of services in the field on the corner of Haggs Lane and Lamesley road should be complete tonight. Further investigations will be required in this area to confirm the route of the existing rising main here. Various trial holes and investigation works are planned over the coming weeks, over the full route of the new proposed rising main, running from the pumping station by Horseworld, back to the Birtley Sewage Treatment Works.  This is the current schedule: •    Investigation works at Junction of Moor Mill Lane and Greenford lane, planned for 11th July. •    Investigation works by the bus stop on Haggs Lane, planned for 25th July.  •    Investigation works at Junction of Greenford Lane and Haggs lane, date TBC. Please contact us direct if you have any questions at nwl.customer@esh.uk.com or 0191 3774500. Thank you  Rachel

Good Afternoon All,  I am pleased to confirm we are now off Grand Parade with two  way traffic flowing.  Over the last week, the site team have been concentrating on trial pits and investigation work. More trial pits are needed next week on Percy Park Road/Grand Parade junction to determine the best route to install the rising main past the junction.  As the Mouth of the Tyne Festival is coming soon we will be backfilling trenches and removing all of the traffic management next Wednesday 06 July and returning on Tuesday 12th July. Please contact us direct if you have any questions at nwl.customer@esh.uk.com or 0191 3774500. Thank you  Rachel

Good afternoon, It's been a couple of weeks since my last update, here is how our work is progressing on site: Sewage Pumping Station - landscaping around the SPS is now 90% complete. The site team are currently installing security covers to the shaft and security fencing around the SPS area.  Upstream gravity - Our subcontractors, Active Tunelling, have been busy working on the upstream gravity pipeline. Manholes 1 & 2 are now complete and the pipeline from manholes 3 & 4 are currently under construction. This will then tie in to the existing network.  Downstream gravity sewer - directional drilling works complete between manhole 11 and 16. The team are currently constructing the manhole chambers 11, 13, 14 & 15. I have included a map which shows the different locations of our working areas, along with some photos. As always, thank you for your continued patience and support. Speak soon. Gaby

Good Morning All, Just thought I'd share the video of the Jubiliee Celebrations at the beginning of the month (sorry for the delay as wanted to ensure we had the correct authority). MMB donated some "pinatas" which the children clearly enjoyed...........hahaha. It looked great and the weather was kind too.

Good afternoon, I hope you're all enjoying this lovely weather we're having! Just following on from my recent update on the HSAF delivery, I thought I'd pop on and share some photos with you now that they are installed. I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and cooperation during the delivery of the HSAF. The concrete footpaths around the PST's (Primary Settlemant Tanks) have been laid. Over on the filter beds, the rotating arm on filter bed 1 has been replaced. The site team have become very proud of their newest guests taking up residency on site. As you can see in the photo included, we have had some swallows nesting in our store cabins.  I'll be posting more updates in the upcoming weeks so keep a look out! Thanks. Gaby
