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 everyone,

Please see attached some images of our progress on site so far. 

The shaft of the pumping station is almost complete with the last remaining rings to be installed by the middle of next week. Once all rings are in place there will be a concrete plug installed along with the concrete base within the structure. This will be carried out over the coming weeks. 

In terms of the drainage installation within the carriageway of South Terrace, we are continuing to progress well with a third of the overall pipework having now been installed. As mentioned yesterday the reinstatements of this initial section will be completed on Saturday 10th July ready for the traffic managment to be moved along to the next section of carriageway on Monday 12th July. 

Hope you all enjoy your weekend and fingers crossed for a good result for England on Sunday!
