Project updates

Update by Sarah Jayne Parvin

Good afternoon I hope you are well and enjoyed the festive break.

Since returning on the 4th January the weather hasn't been on our side which inevitably means our progress has slowed and we now expect to be clear from site mid-February. Most activities are to be carried out as planned but some have been pushed back a week, as they need to be done when the temperatures are a bit warmer than freezing.

We will keep you posted on our progress, and if in the meantime you have any questions please don’t hesitate to use the contact us option at the top of the page, comment below or get in touch at SarahJayne.Parvin@JNBentley.co.uk.

Thanks

Good afternoon all, time for another update ready for MMBs festive shut down which starts on Wednesday 23rd December till 4th January 2021.

Work has continued onsite at the pumping station and will continue when we return in the new year.  Our work for the first 3 weeks of the year will be within our site boundary and then week commencing 25th January we will start to remove cabins from the area and start the reinstatement of the area, which is programmed to take approximately 2 weeks.

We will keep you update of our progress in the new year.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and understanding while we have been carrying out this essential work and would like to wish you a peaceful Christmas and New Year.

Thanks

Good morning all, work has been progressing well since our last update. All the remedial works along Silverton Lane and Whitton Bank Road/Carterside road have now been complete. Work is predominantly focused in and around the pumping station. Which include construction of a Kiosk, the Valve Chamber and Pumping Station. Work will continue to tie all these pieces of equipment together. Alongside this we have constructed a 60-ton crane pad and the crane will arrive onsite Thursday for us to lift some of the equipment into place.

Good Afternoon all,

We are making great progress, the Rising Main installation works now complete from Silverton Lane, over fields, through village and down Whitton Bank to pumping station location.

Preparation work has commenced and will continue through to the end of next week, to install the gravity sewer in Silverton Lane which will then connect into the existing network in Murray Gardens. The preparations include the relocation of some small tree’s, creation of an access gate, removal of the topsoil and delivering plant on site. On the 20th July we will then make a start on the drilling that starts in Murray Gardens.

The sewer installation will continue into Silverton Lane, which will be closed for up to 6 weeks. This is due to start around 5th August, the diversionary routes will be signposted. Resident’s access will be maintained to the properties within the road closure off Silverton Lane.

Also, the sheet piling contractor have installed a piled retaining wall at Sewage Pumping Station location, piles cropped to Whitton Bank profile, see picture below.

As works progress every effort will be made to keep the disruption to a minimum.

I have attached some photos for you to view.

I would like to thank you again for your continued cooperation while we complete this essential work.

Thanks

Sarah
