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 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
