This project is to reduce the risk of pollution to Head Hope Dene. A range of solutions are being investigated to reduce the risk of pollution caused by flooding from the sewer due to blockages, and land slip. Construction is programmed for 2021/22.

Update by Gabrielle Ward

It's been a while since I last posted a progress update, so I thought I'd let you know how our site team have been getting on and share some photos with you.

Following my previous post regarding the overnight work near the A19, the team successfully completed lining this section of the sewer network which involves a sleeve being pulled through the sewer pipe, and then set into place using a blue light system which repairs any fractures found in the pipeline.

Construction of the new sewage pumping station shaft and the new valve chamber are now complete which you can see in the photos below.

We are now continuing the construction of the downstream gravity sewer diversion, and the upstream gravity diversion. 

As always, please feel free to leave any questions you may have in the comment section below.
