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 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!
