GENERAL PROJECT

Marden Quarry Sewage Pumping Station

Together with our partners Interserve, we plan to carry out work between the 4 January 2021 until the end of June 2021 at Marden Quarry Sewage Pumping Station (SPS) although we will be carrying out enabling works prior to these dates. The project represents a £1.5 million investment which will see an upgrade of the mechanical and electrical equipment within the SPS.

Project updates

Update by Shafqat Akbar

Hello everyone. In today's update, I want to tell you about the good progress we are making at the Marden pumping station site. I also want to tell you about the controls that we have in place to manage the risks associated with Covid-19. We have a robust system in place to control works in the offices and on site to ensure we protect our site teams. 

We have stripped out a lot of the existing cabling and electrical apparatus that are being renewed in this project. We are installing the new cables and electrical equipment. Our electricians are working in the main building.

We have agreed a programme of interventions with Northumbrian Water. We have successfully completed our first intervention. The mechanical installation programme is progressing well.

Our Covid-19 control measures on site are founded on the principles set by the NHS. Our site rules emphasise the importance of washing and sanitising your hands, wearing a suitable mask and maintaining a safe distance between you and your colleagues.

Our offices are set up to ensure we can maintain a 2m safe distance at all times. We have imposed a maximum occupancy limit on all our offices, workplaces and welfare units. We ask our colleagues to keep windows open in the offices, avoid face to face meetings, disinfect all durfaces after using a work area and wearing the correct personal protective equipment at all times.

Hello, In today's update, I want to tell you about the good progress we have made and about our site protocols on managing the risk of the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are installing the ventillation in the main building.

We have started operations in one of the wet wells. This work is progressing well.

One of our site controls for managing the Covid-19 risk is to take the temperature of all persons attending site. Anyone showing a high temperature is asked to contact the NHS helpline for advise on what to do.

We have maintained the site rule of keeping a distance of at least 2m from other people. We have placed posters on site reminding everyone of the site rule.

Hello again. In today's update, I would like to tell you about the good progress we have made at our Marden Quarry site. 

Our compound is in place. We established our compound within the Northumbrian Water fenceline.

We are preparing for a mechanical shutdown. We will be carrying out works on some below ground pumps. We are progressing very well with the electrical fit-out works inside the main Northumbrian Water building.

This road is very popular with members of the public. We have set up traffic management on the access road into the site to ensure we do not inconvenience our neighbours in any way.

Our works are progressing very well. We have a number of teams on site to complete the electrical, mechanical and MEICA works.

Hello everyone. I want to let you know that Interserve has started works at the Marden Quarry station after the Christmas and New Year break. We will carry out the works without affecting the public in this very popular area in North Tyneside.

We have set up traffic management signs on the access road to advice drivers to slow down and watch out for pedestrians.

We are setting up the site compound inside the Northumbrian Water site.

Our teams on site started works in the autumn of last year and a lot of the preliminary works are already complete.

We will carry out works ensuring we protect the local environment and the wildlife in the lake.

We have agreed the scope and programme of works with Northumbrian Water. I would like to let you know that we have started the physical works at this pumping station. 

The Marden Quarry pumping station works are predominently mechanical and electrical in nature. The works area is contained within the Northumbrian Water compound.

We have started renewing the building services; lights, heating and water. We have installed a new distrubution board and started placing the traywork. 

The site team have prioritised keeping disruption to an absolute minimum. This area is very popular with people walking around the lake. We have a shared access with some of our neighbours, a nearby business and the local scouts. We have posted letters to our neighbours and advised them of these works.

This area is very popular with people taking a walk in the park and with people walking thier dogs. We will not disrupt any access to the lake, woods and walkways.
