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 afternoon, 

You may have seen me around on site yesterday providing residents with an update on our works. 

This weekend we will be required to carry out some tarmac operations on Saturday 11th September 2021 in order to stay on schedule and to be ready for the traffic lights to be moved along on Monday 13th September 2021. 

Following completion of the tarmac reinstatements the two-way traffic lights will then be moved further along the carriageway on South Terrace closer to the Pumping Station Working area. We anticipate this section of drainage installation to be complete within 5 weeks. 

Over the next week you will see our site team carrying out excavation work within the carriageway of South Terrace in preparation to install the new rising main. Towards the end of the week, Active Tunnelling will be on site along with a 150t all-terrain crane which will be used to install the Pumping Station PCC Slab. 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
