Update by Sarah Jayne Parvin

Good Afternoon,

You should have received a letter earlier this week informing you that our work is due to start 14th June for up to 13 months.

I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce you to our Mott MacDonald Bentley team.

I am Sarah Parvin, Customer Liaison Officer and I will take care of all customer enquiries during the project. You will notice I will be blogging a lot, so please feel free to comment below.

Jason Bradley is our Contract Manager who will be overseeing the project, and then Kevin McGargle, our Site Manager. Kevin will manage the day to day operations. Jason and Kevin hold many years of experience in the construction industry. We all have worked on various projects together with Northumbrian Water.

Work starts on site on Monday 14th June, setting up our site compound at the treatment works.  Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, there will be an increase in vehicles using Mill Lane, taking materials and cabins to the site. A 10 mile an hour speed limit has been introduced and signage posted along the lane. If you usually park your car along Mill Lane, please be mindful that this is a site access and allow enough room for vehicles to access the treatment works.  People will be notified when they are planned wide load deliveries or large plant deliveries to the site so vehicles can be moved for these.

Regular updates will be posted throughout. If you have any questions in the meantime, please don't hesitate to ask.
