TA0588 : Improving Yorkshire's bathing waters

taken 4 years ago, near to Scarborough, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Improving Yorkshire's bathing waters
Improving Yorkshire's bathing waters
This is a massive task, predicted to take two+ years to complete. Yorkshire Water has said the closure is necessary so engineers can significantly upgrade their Toll House pumping station on Marine Drive to make Yorkshire’s bathing waters among the cleanest in Europe as part of a wider £110 million investment. At the Toll House Pumping Station an overflow chamber, a storm water storage tank and a storm water pumping station will be constructed.
The work is intended to reduce the chance of untreated water entering the sea during times of heavy rainfall.
Work will also be carried out at Peasholm Gap, Wheatcroft, Scalby Mills and Burniston in coming years, but no disruption to motorists is expected to be caused in those areas.
The drive remains open to pedestrians and the work did not seem to be disturbing the peregrine falcon that was hanging around today.
