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 Becky Gartland

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
