Roseberry Crescent, Great Ayton Flood Alleviation

We are working with the community to explore opportunities to reduce the risk of flooding. The proposed works are located along Roseberry Crescent, Roseberry Road, Roseberry Avenue, Wheatlands and Newton Road, Great Ayton and within the site which forms part of the estate of Cleveland Lodge. The proposed works involve the installation of approximately 1300m of surface water and foul water sewer for the purpose of flood alleviation. Proposed works are also to involve the construction of a SuDS basin for surface water attenuation.

Project updates

Update by Christine Taylor

Good morning,

Customers will have noticed that our works have not moved up Roseberry Crescent yesterday.  I have spoken to the residents who are impacted and they are aware that we will now be moving up the road next Tuesday/Wednesday.

This will mean the diversion on Roseberry Avenue will not be in place until next week.  

Once again we want to thank all residents for their patience and understanding whilst we carry out these works.

Good morning,

Some of you may have seen myself and Tony Birkett on site yesterday delivering letters.  After speaking to some of our customers, we took the decision to letter drop the whole estate with regards to the next stage of our rolling road closure on Roseberry Crescent.

As of next Wednesday, 21 August 2019, we will be moving up Roseberry Crescent to the junction of Roseberry Avenue.  We have contacted all the residents where driveway access will be impacted however the junction will be closed.  Diversion signs will be in place.  The closure will be in place for upto 5 weeks, we then be moving along Roseberry Avenue. 

As always when we are ready to move my team will be in contact with those customers directly impacted.

Have a great weekend, let's hope the sunshine returns :-)

Good afternoon,

I was on site this morning to look at the next stage of our closure on Roseberry Crescent.  The customers who will be impacted will be notified direct over the next 2 days.

Whilst on site the team took delivery of some cakes from a local resident.  The lads on site were feeling generous and let me have one :-)

Thank you so much for your continued understanding and generousity whilst we carry out our works. 

A special thank you to the customer for the cake donation, from a very grateful Customer Service Manager :-)

See you all soon

Good morning,

Another update for the residents of Roseberry Crescent. 

As of Monday12 August, we are moving further up the crescent towards the school.  We have contacted all residents that are impacted by this section of works.

Please be advised that the junction of Roseberry Road onto Roseberry Crescent will remain open with the use of priority signage.  On Monday the traffic will be diverted off Roseberry Road south towards Farmgarth/Newton Road, not North towards the school.

The school entrance will also remain open throughout our works.  We envisage this section of works will be completed within 5 weeks.

As always, if anyone has concerns please contact me direct to discuss further.

Have a great weekend.

Good afternoon,

I thought it would be beneficial to provide another update.  As you will see today we are moving up Wheatlands.  We want to thank all residents to date for their patience and understanding as our works continue.

To confirm, we are hoping to complete this section of works within the next 5 weeks.  When we are ready to move again, my team or I, will be in contact with residents impacted.  In the first instance we would try to speak to residents prior to sending a letter, however I am sure you will understand this will not always be possible. 

If you are concerned about us moving in front of your property when you are away on holiday, please contact us direct using the 'contact us' option on here, email me at nwl.customer@esh.uk.com or call 03457 171100.

Thank you

Good afternoon,

I thought I would drop in to give a quick update on our progess.  We have been working at the bottom of Wheatlands and have discovered some unchartered gas pipes, which has meant we need to go back to our design team.  This has set us back a few days, meaning we will be moving up the street on Wednesday 7 August.  All the residents who are impacted on our next section of rolling road closure, where their drives will be closed have been contacted by my customer team.

Roseberry Crescent is progressing well and we are planning to move into the middle of the junction of Roseberry Road, allowing traffic still to pass with priority signage in place.  I will be speaking to the customers north of our current closure in the next couple of weeks about the next stage.  Wednesday next week we will be tarmac reinstating the road, to allow some customer to reaccess their drives.

We would like thank all residents for their patience and understanding whilst we are in your area.  Our site team in particular would like to thank the residents who provided refreshments during the recent hot days, this act of kindness went along way. Thank you.

For all those who are off on their summer holidays, please enjoy and stay safe around our works.

Have a great weekend

Good evening everyone,

Sorry for the late update.  I was on site on Friday when the tarmac was completed, and the team sent me photos to update the portal to keep our customers informed, however I have been away from the  office.

I am sure the residents of Roseberry Crescent /Court, who live off Newton Road are happy to see us move on.  We want to take this opportunity to thank them and everyone else for their patience and understanding whilst we carried out this section of work.  Following this, we now want to thank the residents of both Wheatlands and Roseberry Crescent for their continue understanding as our work progresses north through the estate.

If customers are impacted, we are contacting them directly as our work progresses.

Please feel free to contact me via the portal or phone, using 03457 171100 to discuss the matter further.

Thank you

Christine

Good evening,

I thought I would provide a quick update. 

As you will see we are still working at the bottom of Roseberry Crescent, where it junctions with Newton Road.  Our works at this location should be completed by the end of the week. 

Next week, the site team will start to move up both Roseberry Crescent and Wheatlands, using a rolling road closure.  We have contacted customers who will be directly impacted at this time, and will continue to do so as our works progress.

Please follow our diversions as our works progress.

I will be on site later this week if anyone would like to speak to me regarding our works.  You can leave a comment or use the 'contact us' button to arrange an appointment.  Alternatively, contact 03457 171100 and ask to speak to Christine Taylor regarding the work at Great Ayton and I will call you back.

Thank you

Christine

Update by Steve Boyd (Project Manager)

Hi everyone,

Over this last couple of weeks we have continued with reinstatement/landscaping operations within Cleveland Lodge Grounds, carrying out topsoiling, cultivating, and fencing works, works have not gone exactly to plan as we have endured days of prolonged heavy rain, which has affected progress, works shall re commence in this area once the weather allows. 

We have also continued on with the new drainage network installation on Roseberry Crescent, we are presently at the junction of Wheatland's installing both surface and foul water drainage and manholes, we have also extended our works area through towards the mini round about on Newton road where we now need to connect into the existing drainage network chamber, then work back towards the junction of Wheatland's upgrading the existing network foul drainage back to what we have previously installed at the junction of Wheatlands, this shall then tie the new network together prior to being able to turn the flows into the new drainage network, once again due to the inclement weather over the last few days, progress has been a little slower than expected, although we are still maintaining programme. 

I take this opportunity once again to thank you for your patience as we carry out these essential works.

Hopefully the weather picks up for us all again soon, have a good weekend.

Steve.

Hi everyone 

A quick update for you as follows:-

Our new drainage network installation on Roseberry Crescent is going reasonably well, we are currently working up to the junction of Wheatland's

As of Monday 3rd June19 for a period of approx four weeks there shall be no access onto Roseberry Crescent/Wheatlands off the mini roundabout on Newton Road as the road shall be closed whilst we continue on with drainage operations, however during the first week of the closure we will be able to give access to the block of flats out of working hours as per our letter drop.

Unfortunately from week commencing 10th June 19 we will be unable to offer any access for a period of approx 3 weeks, we will endeavor to complete this section of works as soon as possible and will try to minimize any disruption during the course of our works 

Thanks very much for your patience as we carry out these essential drainage upgrade works.

Have a good weekend

Steve.
