Project updates

Update by Becky Gartland

Good afternoon all, 

Some of you may have seen me in the area earlier this morning whilst I was updating residents on the Traffic Management arrangements on the A167. 

From Monday 29th November 2021 there will be traffic management in operation on the A167 at the junction with Hett Lane whilst we carry out works in this area for up to 3 weeks. Our site teams will continue to work 7 days a week until further notice. 

From Friday 17th December 2021, our site will partially close for the Christmas and New Year period, reopening again on Tuesday 4th January 2022. During this time you may see our crews working in and around the treatment work. If you have any queries or concerns during this time, please do not hesitate to contact us as our customer team will remain operational. 

Thank you 

Becky

Good morning,

I thought I would just pop on here to say thank you to both Jeff and Adam, at Croxdale Community Centre, for spending time with me last Thursday.  They shared the wonderful work both them, and the committee memebers are contributing to the Croxdale community.  

They are very excited about the 'History Day' they are hosting on the 27 November 2021, which sounds like an amazing event.  They have asked me to share this information and extend the invite, as they will welcome anyone who would be interested in local history.  

We will endeavour to keep you updated with both our works, and events that your community centre are organising whilst we are working iwithin your community.

Take care

Christine

Good afternoon, 

Some of you may have already seen that we have had to extend the traffic management this morning from Front Street down onto the A167 northbound carriageway, This is to enable the site team to continue works on the rising main. We anticipate this section of work to take 3 weeks to complete. There is a contraflow system in operation on the A167 to maintain traffic flow and the bus stops all remain operational in their usual locations. 

We have also been instructed by Durham County Council to carry out our works across 7 days a week with immediate effect. This will continue until further notice. 

If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. 

Thank you 

Becky

Good morning,

It would seem Autumn is definitely upon us.

I visited site on Friday and met with the site team, who were very busy.  As you will be able to see the compound and office is now in place.  This includes parking for the site team which reduces parking issues in the area.

Since Monday 27 September the team have been digging a trench along the B6288 to take the new rising main.  We would hope to be off the road by this Friday, 22 October 2021.

Our next stage of works will be the installation of pipework behind the compound up to Wood View.  We would hope to start this work on Monday 25 October 2021, my team will keep you updated.

As of today we have traffic lights on the Old Sunderland Bridge, south of the river.  These will be in place for approximately 4 weeks.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or want to discuss the scheme further.

Christine

Good afternoon,

Last week some residents of Croxdale will have received a letter from Northumbrian Water containing further information with regards to this works.  In the letter it stated that the works will start on the 27 September 2021 through to April next year, so I thought this would be a great time to introduce myself.

My name is Christine Taylor, the Customer Service Manager working for Esh Stantec, on behalf of Northumbrian Water.  It is my responsibility to ensure our customers and the local community are communicated with, and have a point of contact when they have concerns.  Becky Gartland is our Community Liaison Office for this works; working closely with me and the site team. 

Myself and Becky Gartland have been on site today, introducing ourself to the local community.  I would like to thank everyone for their time today, Croxdale is a very friendly community.  Becky will continue visiting over the next few weeks, however if you would like to contact me direct or you have missed us, please send me an email on nwl.customer@esh.uk and we can organise a visit.

Over the next few months we will start posting updates on here, the portal, we would encourage all our customers to comment or ask questions.

We will keep in touch.
