Wessex Water is nearing design completion of its £55 million North Bristol relief sewer project, which will see a 5km tunnel pass beneath the M5 motorway, Cribbs Causeway and Network Rail’s Henbury loop.Work is due to start in September 2019 and is expected to take approximately two and a half years to complete, ensuring the sewerage network can cope with ongoing and future development in the north of the city and South Gloucestershire.
The relief sewer will be built using a Tunnel Boring Machine launched from Lawrence Weston, passing below Henbury and continuing to Bristol Golf Club.
GENeco treats huge volumes of varied waste from the city and transforms it into useful products. This includes the food waste recycling from all of Bristol’s residents and sewage sludge from over 1 million people. GENeco also helps around 300 regional customers an alternative disposal route to landfill for the disposal of difficult to treat waste.
From this waste, GENeco produces enough renewably-sourced energy to power over 10,000 homes in the Bristol area, and heavily reduces the environmental impact of local businesses and the community. The by-product of its recycling processes is a nutrient-rich biofertiliser which is used on farms in the region, keeping valuable bio-resources in the local area.
Come along, join the discussion, and find out more.
