Update by Joan Tatters

Good Morning,

I am guessing by now you will have noticed our presence along with our colleagues from Northumbrian Water in Byrness Village. 

Jason and his team are working between all three sites now, Otterburn, Rochester and Byrness now although their main site set up will remain at the Rochester location. It is business as usual for us during this crazy time so it is likely you will notice our guys on a daily basis.

Commissioning is currently progressing at Rochester which gives us the opportunity to "crack on" at Byrness. The ground works start next week (although some clearance work has already happened) and we will be working until the Autumn making every effort to ensure our impact is kept to a minimum.

Our team are a great bunch of lads and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the project however, please be aware of the social distance rules during this pandemic. Or, you can always ask me on the portal :).


Stay safe.
