Murton (Berwick) Water Treatment Works 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 Water Treatment Works at Murton, near Berwick. It is intended that the new works will be located adjacent to the existing buildings. The construction is expected to start late in 2018 or early in 2019.

Update by Joan Tatters

Morning All,

Another update for you.......

What a different a week or two makes, the site entrance works are now complete, the tarmac surface does make the space look bigger and it's definitely tidier.

The topsoil within the grounds of the new treatment works location has been removed and the entrance to it has now been constructed. 50mm of rain falling during the week was disappointing as it hindered the progress of the earthworks.

The road main road will be closed for another week during this current phase of works, to allow testing of the new pipework we laid under the highway. Apologies for the inconvenience.

There will be a temporary speed restriction when the road is re-opened at the end of next week, as construction traffic will increase as surplus soil is removed from the site so again please be that little more cautious.

Our site cabins will be connected to the local water supply today, there will be disruption to the water supply in Murton between 10 – 14:00 hrs whilst Northumbrian Water make the connection. Apologies for the inconvenience. You should have received our letters and spoken to the site team on Friday.

We’ve worked collaboratively with Openreach over the past couple of weeks, Openreach took advantage of our road closure to install the new broadband cable for the local area
