Dilstonhaugh Sewage Pumping Station

Together with our partners Interserve, we plan to carry out work at Dilstonhaugh Sewage Pumping Station (SPS). The project represents a £2 million investment which will see a civils upgrades with new mechanical and electrical equipment installed in the SPS. We are working closely with Interserve our supply partner to make sure any disruption is kept to a minimum. If you are going to be directly affected by our work, our site team will let you know in advance. Typical working hours will be Monday to Friday, between 7:30am and 5:30pm. We'd really like to hear from you if you have any queries so please get in touch using the 'Contact us' button at the top of the page or leave a comment below. Simon Cossar NWL Project Manager

Update by Shafqat Akbar

Hello again. We have established our compound at Dilstonhaugh and started works at the pumping station. In today's update, I want to share our progress to date.

This is the existing pumping station. We will be carrying out improvement works at this location.

The pedestrian route between the pumping station and the River Tyne will remain open to the public. There is a fence line to prevent our works from spilling over onto the pedestrian route.

Our site teams are working to an agreed programme of works. We have agreed a number of interventions at the existing pumping station with Northumbrian Water.

We have established our compound and storage areas in the location of the redundant skateboard park.
