Hi All,

Hope you had a lovely weekend. 

Last week we carried out remedial works in our working area on the Railway Bridge of the A167, this was completed within 1 day.

Work has continued in the area of the treatment works, where the site team have been installing new concrete hard standings and access slabs. This area of work will be ongoing over the coming weeks. 

We have also commenced with some material clearing up operations within the compound with the intention of demobilising followed by reinstating the compound over the forth coming weeks.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Thanks

Happy Friday Everyone!

Just a quick update on how things have been going on site over the past week. 

Most of our work has been contained within the Sewage Treatment Works where we have installed the new pumps within the pumping station/wet well along with testing which was successful. 

The site team have continued work on the concrete base surrounding new structures that have been installed. 

Further preparations have been carried out involving excavation and stoning up on the new proposed concrete hard standing access slabs. This area of work is ongoing and will continue over the course of the coming weeks. 

A quick reminder that there will be 2-way traffic lights in operation again this weekend across the railway bridge whilst we finish off installing the Air Valves within the carriageway of the A167. This will be backfilled and temporarily resurfaced and the traffic lights removed from Sunday afternoon. 

Any questions, please feel free to contact me. 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Regards 

Becky

Good afternoon everyone, 

Apologies it's been a couple of weeks since I last provided you with an update. 

This weekend there will be manually operated two-way traffic lights in operation across the area of the Railway Bridge on the A167. 

In terms of progress, the site team have continued work within the sewerage treatment works. 

Pressure testing was completed on the new rising main within the carriageway of the A167 which has passed and all working as it should. 

Work carried out under a road closure on Woodview has been completed to tie in the new pipework to an existing chamber on the network which then links to Croxdale Treatment Works. 

Mechanical elements have been installed in the way of valves and air valves in chambers within the bus lane on Front Street and this lane closure has now been removed. 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

I hope you are all enjoying the lovely sunshine we have had this week!

The two-way traffic lights have now been removed from the carriageway of the A167 and will no longer be in operation during the week! They will be set up each weekend at various locations within the carriageway adjacent to Rogerson Terrace until Sunday 24 April 2022.

Good afternoon all, 

I have some good news to share with you all!

This week will be the last week that we will have the two-way traffic lights in operation on the A167 southbound carriageway during the week!

From Monday 28th March 2022 the traffic lights will only be in operation on the carriageway across Saturday and Sunday. We foresee this weekend set up to be in place until Sunday 24 April 2022.

The site team will continue to work in areas adjacent to Rogerson Terrace during Monday to Friday however these works can be carried out without the requirement for any traffic lights on the main carriageway. 

In terms of works at the pumping station, specialist sub-contractors have been on site installing pipework and electrical components in preparation for the system to go live. 

If you have any queries regarding any areas of our work, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Thank you 

Becky

Good afternoon, 

It’s been a little while since I last provided you with an update so wanted to bring you all up to date with our progress on site. 

Last week, work on installing the rising main within the carriageway over the railway bridge was challenging due to the numerous services within close proximity to where the pipework needed to be installed. The site team worked hard to overcome this and the pipework within this section has now been completed. 

Following this you will have noticed that the traffic lights have been relocated further South along the carriageway which has resulted in the junction of Rogerson Terrace being closed off whilst we work across this section. We expect this junction to be closed for a period of 2 weeks. Please follow the diversion via Cross Street to access the rear of properties whilst this junction is closed off. 

Work within the pumping station has continued this week with numerous operations taking place. Drainage, ducts and bases have been installed within the valve chamber in preparation for the mechanical fittings for the pumps to be installed within the coming weeks. 

If you have any queries regarding our works, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Thank you 

Becky
