The construction phase of this project is now complete.

There may still be updates, so the project will remain here. We are still monitoring the project and will reply to any comments. So if you have any questions please feel free to comment or contact us here.


West Hallington Reservoir Improvements

In order to maintain the safe operation of West Hallington reservoir there are works required to ensure the continued resilience of the asset in order to be compliant with the requirements of the Reservoir Act. In order to do this, it is necessary to carry out works to improve the drawdown capacity of the reservoir which will require construction activity from May 2022 until the end of July 2023. This will result in restrictions to access around the reservoir crest and an increase in construction traffic during this period.

Update by Julie Oakley

Good afternoon,

I hope you all have had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year

I would just like to provide you with an update on the project here at West Hallington, we have made good progress after the Christmas break and we are on with the dry comissioning, as most of you are aware we have the wet comissioning of the siphon coming up, we now have the dates for this which are Monday 22nd January 2024 and then again on Thursday 25th January 2024, we are not anticipating any major disruptions, as a precuation you will see temporary traffic lights on the side of the road but these will only be used if neccessary.

In the meantime if you have any issues or concerns please do not hesitate in leaving a comment below or contacting myself.

Many thanks
