Update from Northern Powergrid electrical works

We have received the following confirmation from Northern Powergrid that the electrical works will commence on Monday 24th April 2017 and last for approximately 15 working days. We have been informed that the excavation work will commence in the roadway in St Lukes Mount, heading from the new Substation building to the junction with West Grove Road. Unfortunately this will involve a certain amount of disruption for nearby residents, but we aim to keep this to a minimum.

Further information about parking and road closures can be found in the Northern Powergrid letter here.


Resident Update: upcoming works

Dear resident,

Following our recent update regarding key dates and information for electricity installation on site please find below a further update on upcoming works to install gas and water services to the new building and to carry out other site works to parts of St Luke’s Mount.


Gas works will commence 19th April 2017 and will take place over 2-3 days.

The following drawing highlights affected areas which includes dig work at approximately the midpoint of St Luke’s Mount, this will be limited to the ‘site’ side of the road.

Site map for resident update


We do not yet have a confirmed date from the water company, however we have requested that this take place 24th April 2017 and will update our site blog as soon as we have confirmation. Dig work to accommodate the water supply to site will affect the top of St Luke’s Mount as outlined on the attached map.

The gas and water services installation may render St Luke’s Mount temporarily impassible for/due to any cars parked along it. We will try and update our site blog with any specific timings to help you plan your movements wherever possible and when we are given notice.

In addition to the above we will also be carrying out preparatory works for the above statutory authorities works, construction and scaffolding to the section of the cycle and bin store that adjoins St Luke’s Mount, construction of the new lay bay and kerb realignment. This work is expected to continue intermittently over the next 4- 6 weeks.

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience that any of the above may cause and if you do have any specific access requirements during this period, then please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them where possible.

As always we would like to thank you for your continued patience and welcome any questions or concerns via our Project Manager Peter – peter.blackburn@harryfairclough.co.uk .
