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 will be starting at Killingworth Lake in Spring 2018.

Start Date

Update by Steve Boyd (Project Manager)

Hi everyone,

A quick update for you, following my previous blog, this last couple of weeks we have completed the temporary access road including the tarmac installation, as well as access over the existing Letch to our temporary compound set up which is also now complete. We are currently carrying out top soil strip operations within the Farmers fields in preparation to commence the pond excavations. Photos attached.

Catch up with you next week, and have a lovely weekend.
