Happy New Year to you all. We hope you had a wonderful Christmas break. As we step into the new year, we'd like to share some updates on the various sections of our ongoing works.
Carr Hill Inlet Pipeline
From Monday 15th January, we are back on track to commence and complete phases 1&2, the public right of way to the rear of The Mount will be temporarily closed as we continue these phases towards The Mount Community Centre and up to the rear of Sandy Lane / Galloping Green Road. As we enter phase 2, Galloping Green Road, traffic management will be re-introduced I will share a further information and detail here on this portal.
Please also note to help speed up these delayed works we plan to work most Saturday’s between 08:00am and 13:00pm.
Over the next three months, we will be forming the concrete floor of the new reservoir, this will require eight individual continuous concrete pours which take up to ten hours, the first of these pours is scheduled for the 22nd of January. The pours will commence at 08:00am and on occasions we will potentially be working through the night into the early hours. Please note through the hours of darkness we will have floodlights in place, you may notice low level background noise from the floodlight generators.
Our welfare facilities on Mount Lane will also remain open for staff during these extended shifts. We understand this may cause some disturbance and appreciate your patience as we complete each of the eight planned pours.
We will advise on the dates for the remaining seven pours as and when they are planned.
Furthermore also note, to maintain the construction programme, a second crane will be arriving on site within the next two weeks.
Springwell - Pikes Hole Pipeline
We're currently installing fencing, land drains, and undertaking topsoil stripping in this along the pipeline route.
A new access has been established off the A195, leading to an additional site compound behind Washington Football Centre.
At Leam Lane, we're creating a temporary access haul road from Leam to the pipeline working area.
We understand that these works can cause disruptions, and we're doing everything we can to minimise the impact on your daily lives. Your understanding and patience are greatly appreciated as we progress.
