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 Everyone!

Just a quick update on how things have been going on site over the past week. 

Most of our work has been contained within the Sewage Treatment Works where we have installed the new pumps within the pumping station/wet well along with testing which was successful. 

The site team have continued work on the concrete base surrounding new structures that have been installed. 

Further preparations have been carried out involving excavation and stoning up on the new proposed concrete hard standing access slabs. This area of work is ongoing and will continue over the course of the coming weeks. 

A quick reminder that there will be 2-way traffic lights in operation again this weekend across the railway bridge whilst we finish off installing the Air Valves within the carriageway of the A167. This will be backfilled and temporarily resurfaced and the traffic lights removed from Sunday afternoon. 

Any questions, please feel free to contact me. 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
