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

My colleague Becky from the Customer Team has provided an update on a recent school visit to a local school:


A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Westmoor Primary School alongside our Added Value Coordinator Clare Davison. Whilst there we delivered a presentation in the school assembly to educate the children on the works we are carrying out in the local community near to the school and the dangers that they could face entering a building site. We also spent some time delivering STEM sessions to the Reception classes where they were involved in activities that raised awareness about the water network and what they should & shouldn’t flush down the toilet. All of the children involved were very engaged throughout the sessions and enjoyed being a part of the activities as you can see in the images attached. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those at Westmoor Primary School who welcomed us into their school during our visit.
