Good afteroon Everyone
I've been spending a bit of time at our Killingworth site this week and had the pleasure of meeting a few residents around the Lake, trying to spread the word about the next stage of our work which starts on Monday.
Elsewhere, work on the pipe jacking is progressing well and we're making good progress. We're about halfway through the first drive. (I've attached a couple of pictures which perfectly illustrate the pipe jacking, which is basically pushing pipes underground between two excavations without the need to dig a trench.)
More good news is that we have now found the services that we were looking for on Station Road, so we will have this reinstated and clear of traffic management by the end of Friday 2 November 2018.
The manhole within the Kier depot is also nearly completed despite some difficult weather conditions.
As we've already expained, we start work beside the lake on Monday 5 November 2018. There will be two way traffic lights on Southgate for a period of 2 weeks while we set up the compound. Due to the position of the traffic lights, the bus stop will be suspended and temporarily moved further up the road towards The Leisure Centre.
The compound will be situated be on the grassed area to the south of the Lake, which means that the footpath nearest the Lake will be close to the public.
If anyone has any questions about the work, please get in touch
