Hi, Apologies we've not provided updates on this Project for some time but we are working towards progressing to construction early in 2022 (subject to business approval) and we will publish the  likely construction period here once this is known. We will write to customers who may be impacted more directly by the proposed pipeline shortly. You may see some activities on site in the next few months and these will include excavating trial trenches to confirm exisiting services.  I hope this information is OK for now but if not or you have any other queries then please post here. Thanks for your time. Peter

Just a brief update to let everyone know that this project is currently being reviewed (including the scope of the work that is planned); this means that construction is unlikely to start  in April, as estimated previously.  Once the review is complete and we are more confident of scope and programme we'll provide an update.

Hi, My name is Peter Greenan and I am Northumbrian Water Project Manager for the Aislaby Road Rising Main Project.  The project involves replacing approximately 1 mile of  failing pumped main from Aislaby Road Pumping Station to Allens West, Eaglescliffe.  The main carries sewage from Yarm and the majority of Eaglescliffe.  We are currently confirming construction estimates and the overall projects cost will be approximately £2 million.  Construction is not planned until April 2020.   The route of the new main is in fields and grassed areas and crosses both Aislaby Road and the A67.  We would like to let customers know what the work consists of in more detail and seek their views at the same time.  We will write to customers in the near future letting them know how they can find further details of what is planned and how to provide feedback.  In the meantime, if you have any queries then please feel free to post them here.
