Killingworth & Longbenton

Together with our project partners, the Environment Agency and North Tyneside Council, we are investing over £5 million to manage surface water in the Killingworth and Longbenton areas of North Tyneside. This work will increase the capacity of the combined sewer thereby reducing the risk of flooding during heavy rainfall. The work is to be completed in 3 phases; Longbenton High School and Benton Green & Cemetery, Forest Hall & Killingworth Moor and finally Killingworth Lake. Phase 1 and 2 are now completed and the work around Killingworth Lake started in Summer 2018.

Update by Anthony Birkett

Hi Everyone

I've had the pleasure of speaking to many residents in the area recently to provide information on what we're up to; and of course we've met many of you at the customer event that Northumbrian Water held.

As you may have noticed, we've started work in the area. This week will mostly consist of setting up the site before we start digging in the industrial estate. We've set up our compound in the ground of Kier and I have attached a photo of the site compound.

We'll keep you updated on here with regular progress updates and I will be in touch as we move closer to the Lake, although it will be some time before we get there.

Speak soon
