Northumbrian Water – sewer pipe work 20th March

Message from Northumbrian Water:

We want to make you aware of some essential work that is happening in your area.

We are investing £200,000 to re-line and strengthen a sewer pipe close to Farnley Gate on the A695.

The work is scheduled to start on Monday 20 March, subject to some minor test work during the previous week, and will last for up to three weeks. We will, however, be making every effort to reduce that time as much as possible to reduce any disruption.

As part of the work, we will need to shut off the nearby pumping station and use tankers to transport the sewage to our treatment works at Broomhaugh, Riding Mill for the duration of the work. This tanker activity will be limited to week days, between 8am and 5pm, as will two-way traffic lights that will be situated at Farnley.
