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

Work is progressing well, despite the inconsistent weather - I've had to de-ice my windscreen a couple of times this week!

The weir section into the detention basins is now completed and we have now started on the landscaping in the detention basins - seeding and planting shrubs.

We are also going well in the area of the park and have started on the footpaths around the detention basins.

Thanks to Lawrence for this week's progress update.

Have a nice weekend

Tony
