Aislaby Road Rising Main

Project to replace a failing pumping main from Aislaby Road Pumping Station to Allens West, Eaglescliffe.

Update by Gabrielle Ward

Good afternoon,

I am pleased to let you know that we have now complete installing the full length of the rising main pipeline from Aislaby Road up to Allens West Train Station (1635m of pipeline). The transition from the existing pipeline to the new pipeline has successfully been complete and is now fully operational! Prior to Christmas, the team will be clearing the existing rising main and it will then be capped off. 

The recent weather conditions have unfortunatley prevented us from being able to complete the reinstatement work along the route of the pipeline. I'd like to reassure you that once we return to work in the New Year, we will be continuing with topsoiling and leveling out our working areas. This will then allow our subcontractor to come and re-seed the grassed areas in the Spring. 

The team will commence with de-mobilising the site compound area in January. Please be extra vigilent if you are visiting Aislaby Road during this time as we will have large wagons coming to and from site whilst we remove the cabins and site materials. We will be sending out communications to nearby properties in the new year.

The site will be closing down for the Christmas break from Wednesday 20th December until Tuesday 2nd January. 

On behalf of the project team, we would like to thank you for your continued patience this year and we hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!
