Update by Christine Taylor

Good afternoon everyone,

I thought it would be a good oportunity to give you all an update of our works.

Shotton Road area (near to the Fire Station):-

Works progressed well last week following the installation of the Northern Connection as per our previous update. We are currently progressing with the installation of the sewer towards and over the existing Burn. We are also completing the concrete support to the Northern connection this week.

Hunter Road:-

We have successfully made the new connection onto the existing sewer. Works are now progressing with the installation of the new pipe-line along Hunter Road.

Please keep checking the traffic management section of the Customer Portal for traffic updates.

If any issues arise please do not hesitate to contact us by commenting here, or dropping into our site cabin.

We do have some photos and videos which will be posted later, due to technical issues I am unable to post at this moment in time.
