Essential sewer maintenance work in Redcar is to begin in the New Year.
Northumbrian Water is to replace a pipeline that transfers wastewater to Marske sewage treatment works along The Stray, and into farmland off the A1085 Coast Road.
The £1.4 million, eight-month scheme starts on Monday January 7 2013.
Customers are invited to find out more about this work at a drop-in session on Tuesday December 11 2012 at Zetland Park Methodist Church Hall, The Crescent, Redcar, between 3.00pm and 7.00pm.
Project manager for the scheme, Dave Groark, said: “This work is part of our multi-million pound commitment every year to upgrade the sewerage network and improve the environment.
“It is essential that we replace the existing pipeline as it is not as reliable as it used to be. Customers should be reassured that we are doing everything we can to reduce disruption and complete the job as quickly as possible.”
During the work it will be necessary to have two-way traffic lights in place at two points on the A1085 Coast Road. Traffic lights will be in operation opposite Redcar Football Club between Monday April 22 2013 and Friday May 3 2013, and adjacent to Zetland Park between Monday April 1 2013 and Friday May 24 2013.
Traffic associated with the improvement work will need access to the working areas and to the site compound, located by the Coast Road public convenience building.
It is very unlikely that anyone from Northumbrian Water, or contractor Graham Construction, to require access into customers’ homes while the work is being carried out. Customers should be vigilant of bogus callers claiming to be from the water company.
