Blyth - Bates Avenue (Tallie Drive, Blyth)

We are planning work on the sewer network to reduce the risk of flooding and improve the performance of the sewers in Blyth.

Update by Gabrielle Ward

Good afternoon,

Since returning from Christmas break, construction work on site is continuing to progress well.

Manhole Chamber 02 is now installed which takes the inflow from the sewer in the road (Crawford Street) into the new infrastructure being constructed behind Sheehan Court. The dig down for installing the screen channel within the building is almost at total depth now. The screen channel will accommodate the new escalator screen which screens the inflow (removing any rags and other unwanted solids) coming in from the new Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) which is yet to be constructed.

Going forward into the month of February, we will be continuing works on the screen channel, installing Manhole Chamber 04 alongside associated pipework and then moving onto the CSO dig down.

I have included some photos for you to view.

As always, thank you for your continued patience.
