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


Just a quick update of whats being happening on site over the last couple of weeks.

The concrete pour and kerbs around the SPS area aim to be complete by the end of the week. The team are currently carrying out the landscaping to the batters around the SPS. 

Over on the downstream gravity sewer and the upstream gravity sewer, sections of the pipeline between manholes 2 & 3 along with manholes 11, 13 and 14 have been laid.

I'd also like to make you aware that from Monday 20th June, we will be implementing a lane closure along the A19 northbound for approximatley three nights between the hours of 8pm and 6am. 

As always, if you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment below and a member of our project team will get back to you.
