Latest Updates

By Graeme Ridley

Good evening, Just an update to inform you we are now close to completing this project, now planned end of April 2021. Fastflow will be doing work on Fox and Hounds Lane & adjoining roads south of the busy West Road, w/c 14/12/2020 to complete one of our smaller distribution mains tie ins, which will be completed before Christmas. Then in the New Year, Fastflow need to have some road narrowing traffic management to undertake work on our larger strategic main in the West Road. We will not need any temporary traffic lights on this busy road, but there will be cones & barriers on the road and narrowing the road slightly so Fastflow can do the work. But traffic flow should be not interrupted, just be aware Fastflow work force need to work safely. I'll update you in the New Year with information on the Traffic Management that is required, so you can fully take in the extent of the cones & barriers on the road and for how long it will take. The work though, is planned to be finished on the West Road hopefully by Easter 2021. Stay safe Graeme Ridley (NWG Project Manager)

Good afternoon,  Just a quick update to let you know that you will see our crews working in the carriageway of Millburn Terrace tomorrow between 9:30 and 15:30. As part of the ongoing water network improvents being carried out in Bedlington and the surrounding areas, our site team will be removing a manhole cover from the road surface where part of the drainage network is no longer in use. There will be two-way traffic lights in operation whilst this work is being carried out. If there are any concerns please contact us on 0345 717 1100. Thank you  Becky

The works at Lockwood Beck are progressing well but the weather will prevent us from finishing all of the works. The installation of the tensar reinforcement on the embankment is almost complete. The recent wet weather is has waterlogged the ground. We are not able to complete the construction on the top of the embankment in this site visit. We will agree a date for the return visit with Northumbrian Water.  The works at the bottom of the embankment will continue as these will not be affected by the waterlogged ground. We have started installing the temporary works adjacent to the redundant Northumbrian Water buildings.

Hello. Interserve has completed the main works at the Browns Point station near Cullercoats. Our compound was located off the main road close to the station entrance. This was to minimise any disturbance to our nieghbours and visitors to this popular part of the north east coast. We observed all of the NHS recommendations during the works. We had sanitising stations in our compound.  The main works are all complete and the team is moving to our next project not too far away. We separated our works area from the nearby houses.

Hello, It's me again. All went to plan working at the weekend and we managed to push things along so the traffic lights have now been removed on the B6525..........hooray!!!!! The work in the industrial is all located in one place now so access should be easier for the businesses. Thank you again for your patience. Joan

Hello I’m Nick Warner, Customer Care Manager, at Northumbrian Water. I’m working closely with our Project Manager, Paul Black, and our supply partners during our essential work in Hepscott. I hope you and your families are keeping safe and well during what has been a challenging year for so many of us. I just wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself to you and to give a further update after Paul’s initial posts last month. Work continues to progress very well, despite the weather, which I realise is only to be expected at this time of year. It’s good to be able to report that our project is still on course to be completed by the end of March 2021. The significant part of our preliminary heavy engineering work is now very advanced and well on the way to being completed. Over the next couple of weeks, you may start to see our larger plant being moved off site. I look forward to being able to provide a further update as our work progresses. In the meantime however, we remain open to understanding your views about this project and how we can continue to minimise any disruption for you and your community whilst the work is in progress. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch, either via this portal or by contacting our Customer Centre by telephone on 0345 717 1100. Please ask to speak with a member of the project team. We do of course continue to appreciate your patience and understanding. Kind regards Nick Warner Customer Care Manager
