Durham Riverside Footpath

Good Morning,

I am pleased to inform you that the work we have being carrying out by the river is now complete.

As of tomorrow, all equipment and machinery will no longer be in the area, and the footpath closure will be removed. 

I have added some photos below to show you what the liner looks like, and how it is installed it into the sewer line using "trenchless technology". 

On behalf of the Project Team from Northumbrian Water, MMB and Pipetek, we would like to thank you for your patience during the work, and for your cooperation which has allowed us to complete this necesarry work in a safe and timely manner.

Durham Riverside Footpath

Good Morning,

Just a quick update on the progress of our work so far. 

Last week involved setting up our site where the work will be taking place, along with completing the build of the scaffolding. We will use the scaffolding to access manholes safely which are located on the harder to reach places on the embankment side. We also made a start on installing the liner to a section of the pipeline.

This week entails completing more liner installations. I have attached a photo below which shows you what the liner looks like. 

I would like to thank you for your continued patience and support during this essential work. 

Stay safe everyone!

Durham Riverside Footpath

Good Morning,

If you've been for a walk along the beautiful riverside footpath which runs parallel to North and South Bailey you may have seen some of our notices regarding a footpath closure starting next week. I just wanted to post some information on the work we will be carrying out, and let you know more about the closure. 

As of next week, Mott Macdonald Bentley and Pipetek will be making a start on carrying out liner installations to the sewererage network on behalf of Northumbrian Water. This will involve a closure to the footpath along the riverside from Wednesday 4th November for two weeks, however, this route will be accessible on weekends. Access will also still be maintained to Hatfield College Boat Club using the path which leads from Hatfield College, down to the river. You can find a screen shot attached below which shows you where the closure will be located. 

We will also have a vactor (a large vacuum tanker) parked underneath Elvet Bridge located in the courtyard adjacent to The Boathouse Bar. We will try and keep any disruption to an absolute minimum during this time.

We plan on being in the area for around three weeks, so if you do see us and would like to ask any questions or to just pop and say hello, please feel free to do so. We just kindly ask that you keep a safe two metre distance from our site team, who are also following government guidelines. 

I will be posting updates throughout the duration of the work. In the mean time, if you have any questions please leave a comment below and we will be happy to help.

Have a lovely weekend, and stay safe!

Hawthorn

I just wanted to post a quick update regarding the work we (MMB) have been carrying out over the past two weeks in Hawthorn.

The good news is, we have finished this part of our work along the road towards Hawthorn Nature Reserve and the road closure will be removed today.

The work has run very smoothly, even though the weather wasn't completely on our side, we managed to get most of the liners installed to the sewer network. We will need to return in the future to complete the final stretch of pipe and will notify you closer to the time.

If you have any further questions, please post a comment below or visit the "contact" button at the top of the page. 

We would like to thank you for your continued patience and co-operation.

Good Morning,

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend.

Firstly, I would like to introduce myself. I am Gabrielle Ward, the Customer Liaison Officer for this project.

I have spoken to some of you before over the phone, however I just wanted to post a quick update regarding some work we are carrying out this week.

You may have seen our Bentleys and Pipetek vans around the area recently. This is because we have been carrying out some inspections on the sewer network using CCTV surveys to determine the condition of the pipeline.
After looking at the results of the surveys, we will be returning this week to carry out some repairs to the sewer network by lining the sewer pipe. 

The work will start on Monday 8th June, and will continue Tuesday 9th June, Thursday 11th June and Friday 12th June.
We will keep disruption to a minimum, however I just wanted to make you aware of our vehicles that will be parked around this area for the following week and kindly ask that you are extra vigilant at this time. Your water will not be affected during the works and access will be maintained for all residents.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment below. Alternativley you can use the "Contact" button at the top of the page.
