Whitton Village Sewer Diversion

Northumbrian Water is looking to investing £2M to improve the resilience and enhance the performance of the sewer network in Whitton Village Northumberland.

Update by Ian Davison

Hi all

I hope you have had a great weekend. Just a quick note to advise that our contractor will be onsite next week excavating trial holes to establish the location and level of existing services along the route of the proposed sewer. This work will involve the use of machinery to excavate a shallow inspection trench within the road and verge to expose and record buried utility cables and pipelines. The location of the trial holes are show on the plan posted on the planned works tab and shown on the photo below. Traffic management will be required and the highway will be fully reinstated upon completion.

This work will take up to 7 working days, within this period we will also be undertaking a geotechnical investigation which will allow the engineering team to assess the ground conditions within which the new sewer is proposed. Once we are on site, if you are going to be directly affected by our work, our site team will contact you in advance. The site team will do everything they can to minimise any inconvenience caused by this and will make sure that the work is carried out safely. Upon completion the land will be reinstated back to the original condition
