Two firms have been chosen by Thames Water to handle the relocation of its sewage treatment works at Syfield, Guildford as part of the Weyside Urban Village development.

The entrance to Thames Water’s current sewage treatment works at Slyfield, Guildford.

As reported on the Construction Enquirer free news website, the two firms are BAM Nuttall and Doosan Enpure. With Thames Water the partnership has a five-year contract to design, construct, and commission the new plant.

It adds that Guildford Borough Council is funding the £80 million project.

The report also adds that a “1.5km, 1,500mm-diameter tunnel will be constructed to transport the sewage from Guildford’s existing sewer network to the new site, along with facilities to carry out the four stages of treatment to meet environmental requirements before the treated water is returned to the River Wey via a newly-constructed outfall”.

Construction is estimated to begin next autumn (2022) and likely to be completed early 2026.
