Rookery Gardens, Rushyford

Northumbrian Water, alongside Mott MacDonald Bentley, are working to improve the sewer network in Rushyford, Ferryhill.

Update by Sarah Jayne Vickers

Good afternoon, we have now finished the construction of manholes 5 and 4a on The Lane. Premier Traffic Management have been on site today and modified the TM to allow for the section of road outside School Cottages to be reopened. As you will see from the first picture below the TM has moved further along. Can we please emphasise the importance of abiding by the traffic signals, these are there for your safety. If you suspect thy are not working, please flag this to a member of the team, or alternatively if it’s out of hours please ring Premier Traffic Management on 0151 4941199.

The new temporary road, which has ensured we maintain vehicular access at all times is now complete. When we designed the road, we looked at the working widths for the access and looked at how to protect the services that run through the footpath including telephone cables, electric cables and gas supplies. We have plated over those to protect from vehicular loading and tarmac secures it and provides a running surface for traffic. Once the work is complete, we will remove the tarmac and plate's then resurface the area.

The footpath along The Lane outside School cottages is being temporarily relocated to the opposite side of the road. Whilst access to the post box and notice board are still accessible this will change towards the end of next week/beginning of the following week. I will update you next week to confirm when these will become inaccessible.

Enjoy your weekend!
