Heworth Burn

Working closely with Gateshead council, we are looking to invest up to £4 million to upgrade our sewers and highway drainage in the Heworth area.

Update by Lewis Cox

Morning all, 

Major civils work with regards to our new shaft are now completed. The gravity sewer is progressing well despite Gatesheads recent extreme weather!

You may see us around the the swan pub over the coming weeks as we upsize a pipe across sunderland road. 

Overall there is a great vibe on site, I also feel the relationship with the locally communtity remains strong as we work progresses as planned! 

I have attached a few photos for your viewing.

Have a nice weekend.
