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

As you can see the main body of work is now complete although you will probably still see us around for the next week or so, finishing off some minor jobs.  Some things have been on hold due to the recent rain that we've had, however these will be completed when the weather permits.

The council have also asked that we leave fencing up around the picnic area until the seed takes hold - we will be replacing our branded fencing there with a smaller, different type of fence and it will remain in place for a little while.

I've attached a few pictures that were taken this morning.

Regards

Tony
