Good Morning & Happy Friday
A lot has happened in two weeks, Jamie and his team have made great progress.
You will have seen the site is now all prepared for the works to commence on Monday. Jamie wants me to confirm your health and safety is absolutely paramount to us so, the site guys have made sure the working areas are all fenced off, his team have introduced safe pedestrian pathways and he wants to reiterate to remain vigilant around the compound area as there will be an ongoing traffic presence throughout the project.
Monday brings the start of the work within the woods...the team will be breaking out the existing wall down stream to construct a manhole then further into the stream constructing a further manhole on a combined sewer.
Because of the nature of this work (no punn intended) we are committed to deliver that extra special care because of the environment so we enlisted the assistance of our specialised colleagues to keep things right!!! We are also including "Friends of Pelaw Woods" and they are on board with us, they have come across a rare plant, which we are moving to keep safe.
Have a look at the photos, we have made every effort to clear a pathway into the woods with minimal distruption, aiming to protect this beautiful area of Durham.
Thank you for your patience during this time, it is appreciated and if you want to ask us any questions please feel free.
Either Jamie or I will be posting news every week from now on so watch this space!!!!
