Update by Chris Austin

Hi everyone

I'm Chris Austin the Project Manager for the Murton Water  Treatment Works (WTW)  Upgrade.

As part of our ongoing investment programme and to ensure the highest level of customer service, we are planning to extend and improve the existing WTW at Murton, near Berwick Upon Tweed.

The extension of the existing WTW facility will comprise of a new building, new settlement tanks, new disinfection tanks, modification to the site vehicular access and new areas of roads / hardstanding within the site.

We are shortly planning to commence with our construction activity at the site.    Initial preparatory works will start on site on Wednesday 14 November 2018 before the main construction works commence.

We're working in partnership with our framework partners Mott MacDonald Bentley to complete the construction work at the site which will take up to 12 months to complete with planned completion in December 2019.

We will share further information with you about this project and will also provide regular updates on progress and traffic management whilst works are in progress.
