Sunderland Bridge STW Transfer Works

We are investing £2.5 million to ensure the sewer network continues to serve the community effectively in the future; reducing the risk of flooding and pollution in the Sunderland Bridge and Croxdale area. Our partners, ESH Stantec will be undertaking the work on our behalf beginning on 27 September 2021 and will last until 26 April 2022.

Update by Christine Taylor

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.
