Sewerage scheme finished

CONSTRUCTION work has been completed on a £1million sewerage network project in Morpeth.

Northumbrian Water has installed 120m of sewer pipe along sections of Bennett’s Walk and Alexandra Road as well as a new combined sewer overflow and sewage pumping station in the former grassed area adjacent to Alexandra Road.

The company thanked residents for their patience during the works and Kathleen Orr, who lives in Bennett’s Walk, was pleased that the workers kept her regularly informed about what they were doing.

Grassland re-instatement should take place soon.
