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

Bobby has provided this week's update:

Work is progressing well on the basin excavation by the Lake. Wagon activity will continue to remove the clay from site for the next 5-6 weeks via Southgate.

The Gas Diversion on Station Road is complete but the Traffic Management will stay in place for a little while longer so we can monitor progress as we pass under the Gas Main. The Pipe Line Drillers have been on site here this week, preparing for the drilling under the gas main so they will be ready to go from Monday 4 February 2019.

We are continuing to make good progress with the pipe laying as we make our way towards the park.

Enjoy your weekend
