Esh Winning Sewer

Northumbrian Water are working in your are to improve our sewer network to reduce the risk of pollution incidents in Esh Winning. The Esh Winning sewer runs in close proximity to the Priest Burn and, at times of heavy rainfall, it can present a risk of pollution to the river. The solution we identified to this includes the installation of a new pumping station in the field opposite South Terrace and a new pipeline along the main road into the sewage treatment works.

Update by Becky Gartland

Good morning, 

Lets start the week off with a progress update on how things are going on site. 

The team are continuing with the drainage installation on South Terrace and have reached the location of where the second manhole chamber is to be built which will be happening over the coming few days. Following this we will be starting to reinstate this section of carriageway to prepare for moving the traffic management along to the next section. 

Shaft operations for the pumping station are progressing well and we have now installed segment 6 of 13. Excavation operations will continue this week as further segments of the shaft are installed. 

Fingers crossed the weather picks up later in the week!

If you have any questions regarding works this week, please get in touch. 

Thank you
