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 Becky Gartland

Good afternoon Everyone,

Following our work over the last 18 months, you will see our site team returning to site on Monday 12th April 2021 for a period of up to 3 weeks. They will be working within the location of the basins to complete minor defect works. 

There will be plant equipment in operation with banksmen in attendance to maintain safety for pedestrians passing the working area. Footpaths from Ludlow Avenue, Whitehouse Lane and Whitecliffe Close will remain open during these works.

If you have any queries or concerns regarding these works, please do not hesitate to contact Christine Taylor on nwl.customer@esh.uk.com.
