BS10 Parks and Planning Group

Wessex Water are planning a new £55M North Bristol Relief Sewer, which will run from Lawrence Weston through Henbury to connect with the existing network under the Bristol Golf

Club at the top of Cribbs Causeway.  This new sewer network is in anticipation of the additional demand which will be created by the development on and around the former Filton Airfield.


Wessex Water will be installing a 2.85mtr deep tunnel using a tunnelling machine, this will minimise the disruption to the local community.   Work is planned to start in the autumn of this year and will take 2.5 years to complete, although they plan to complete the tunnelling by autumn 2020.  Further details can be found on the Wessex Water web site.


At a recent meeting concern was expressed about the use of Charlton Road as an access point to the Massive Attack concert planned to be held on the former airfield site during the summer, upon further investigation this IS NOT THE CASE.


Access to this concert which is being held in the “Steel Yard” site within the airfield, and access will be from either A38 or from the Blenheim roundabout on the Hayes Way link road.


BS10 Parks and Planning Group meet on the 2nd Monday of each month, with the next meeting to be held on Monday 11th February 6pm at the Greenway Centre, everyone is welcome.
