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 afternoon,

Adam, our Senior Engineer on site has sent through a progress update.

Our landscapers have been working this week; harrowing and stone picking from the school down to basin 7, the east end of site. The seeding is to commence either Thursday or Friday.  The fencing has been stripped from whitecliff path back to site entrance, by the back of morrisons carpark.

Our team have started to reinstate the path and pin kerbs to whitecliff path and will start to reinstate the Beach Road site entrance.  All of this works should be completed next Thursday.  The landscaping works shoud be completed by next Friday, except tree planting, which will be autumn time.

We will be demobing the compound at the Leisure centre next Friday 24th July 2020.

I hope everyone has a nice weekend and we will provide a further update next week.
