“Shell Layby was causing our client huge problems"

what we did here?

Steve Williams, Director at M&S Construction Group comments:

“The sites Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP) had failed, resulting in the removal of waste via tankers, at an excessive cost. Similar to Singleton Cross we offered a permanent solution discharging all of the sewerage from the Petrol Filling Station to the nearby Thames Water Sewerage Treatment Works (STW) in Weston-on-the-Green.

“Again, working closely with developers at Thames Water and Oxford Council, I obtained consent to discharge to Weston-on-the-Green, also obtaining an S106 Sewer Connection, along with a road and street work permit Section 50 from Oxford Council.

“We successfully installed a Kingspan dual pumping main at the Petrol Filling Station to the Thames Water Sewerage Treatment Works at Weston-on-the-Green. This required us to excavate and install a 380 metre rising main through the council layby. Inside the Sewerage Treatment Works we further installed 80 metres of clay drainage network. The gravity drainage was adopted by Thames Water, all of which was installed to Sewerage For Adoption 7th Edition standards.


what was the outcome?

“Again, this project ran smoothly with zero incidents, resulting in a fully operational drainage network, meeting every requirement and saving the client thousands of pounds.”
