My name is Chris Bond and I am have taken over as Northumbrian Water Project Manager from Lynn for this project.
As previously communicated, we have identified an opportunity to improve our sewer network to reduce the risk of pollution. The proposed works are to include installing a new pumping station in the field opposite South Terrace and a new pipeline along the main road into the sewage treatment works.
Following approval of planning, we had envisaged to start on site in 2020, however due to unforeseen circumstances the start date was postponed. We are now in a position to advise that we are due to start on site on Monday 17th May 2021.
Traffic management will be necessary for a period of five months whilst the compound is set up, near the existing Treatment Works and the pipeline along the main road is installed.
We will continue to update you all on how the works progress but in the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact me or the project team if you have any questions or concerns.
