Essential sewer maintenance work in Eaglescliffe is to begin next week.
Northumbrian Water is to replace a 170 metre pipeline in fields south of Aislaby Road, that transfers wastewater to Aislaby Road pumping station.
The £250,000 scheme starts on Monday April 22 2013 and will take two months to complete.
Project manager for the scheme, Peter Trees, 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 assured that we are doing everything we can to reduce disruption and complete the job as quickly as possible.”
Warning signs will be in place until the end of May at the approach to the working area on Aislaby Road, near the junction with Bridge Close, and near the site compound, located within the grounds of Yarm School.
Some large deliveries are expected to the site while the work is being carried out. Traffic management will be used at these times to allow vehicles to pass safely.
Deliveries to site will use the existing access gates into Yarm School’s playing fields. All work has been carefully co-ordinated with the school.

It is very unlikely that anyone from Northumbrian Water, or contractor Seymour (Civil Engineering Contractors) Limited, 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.
