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

Happy Friday!

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. 

The site team are finishing off aspects of work within the pumping station in preparation for testing of the rising main to be carried out next week. 

From Monday 28th March 2022 there will be a road closure in place on Woodview adjacent to parking bays near the allotments. This closure will be in place for 2 weeks whilst we complete final connection works on the pipework. 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and if you have any questions, please let me know. 

Thank you
