Monks Wood, North Shields Surface Attenuation

We are currently on site adjacent to Beach Road. Our scheme is to separate surface water flows from the combined sewerage system and store the excessive flows during storms. To do this, we are constructing new surface water and combined sewers together with a series of cascading basins in which to hold back the flows until the storm subsides and the existing sewerage system can accept the storm water.

Update by Christine Taylor

Good morning,

I hope everyone is keeping well?

The site team have sent me an update which I want to share with you.

As you will have seen we have arrived back on site to complete our works, now the weather and ground has improved.  The team have set up the compound in Tynemouth Swimming Pool carpark.  We have had a team carrying out testing of the existing drainage, and an inspection from Northumbrian Water is pending.

On Monday, Northeast Groundworks (GWS) arrived on site. They started with reprofiling the field from Ludlow path to Basin 1. The crew are working down the field, and will be tiding basins as they go.  

This Monday our contract partner Straughans arrive on site, to strim the path to the rear of heras fence, this will assist with customer access to the rear of their properties.  Following this they will spray off self seeded weeds across site.  Straughans will then return in a couple of weeks to commence seeding, cultivating etc.

Have a lovely weekend and I hope the sun makes an appearance.
