Sewer Improvements for Whitby

Yorkshire Water is investing £400,000 in Whitby to improve sanitation levels and sewers which have been damaged by sea water. The work started on 19th January and will take approximately three months to complete.

More than 600 metres of sewer will benefit from new plastic liners and manholes will be re-sealed to stop salt water from getting into the pipes. The work, which will be carried out by contractors Mott MacDonald Bentley, will take place along Pier Road, Marine Parade, Haggersgate, St Ann’s Snaith and New Quay Road.

Project Manager, Mike Glew comments: “We’re investing in the sewerage system at Whitby by tackling an issue we’ve had with sea water entering sewer pipes. When the tides are high, or during stormy weather, salt water can get into the sewers and cause damage. We’ll be inserting specialist plastic liners through manholes in the streets.

“At this stage we don’t expect that we’ll need to close any roads or affect traffic, and businesses will be trading as usual throughout our work.

“We’ll also be avoiding disruptive work during the half term and Easter holiday periods”.
