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.

Hi Everyone

I hope you all had a great festive period with your family and friends!

Its a new year and we're back, refreshed and raring to go!

First of all, this week we are establishing our compound area on the grassed area between Ryder Court and the Lake.

Workwise, we've continuted working in the SIG depot and continued working in the area of the play park - you'll notice a fenced corridor here. The fencing will remove one of the access gates to the park, but the park is still open as usual. The footpaths here are also remaining open for now, but in time we will need to impose a diversion when the work gets closer to the footpath.

Next week we will start the gas main diversion on Station Road that had previously been postponed before Christmas. The work will be in the road, but we will be able to manage traffic flow with signs and cones so we don't expect delays. This will be in place for 9 weeks from Monday 14 January 2019.

The following week, we expect to start on the earthworks in the basins themselves, but I'll give more information about that next week.

I've attached a few pictures of our work this week
