We are investing around £20 million in building a new sewer
which will ensure our system copes with ongoing and future development in North
The Frome Valley relief sewer will enable us to provide an
adequate sewerage system for new residents of areas such as Yate, Emersons
Green, Harry Stoke and Filton, where thousands of new homes are being built.
The first sections of the Frome Valley relief sewer were
laid in areas of North Bristol and Yate in South Gloucestershire in the 1980s
To complete the sewer, we are constructing a 5km long, 1.8m
diameter sewer pipe that will run from the north of Frampton Cotterell,
westwards to Bradley Stoke. Most of the work will be carried out in fields
rather than roads.
Once built, the sewer will divert waste water flows from
Yate to Bristol sewage treatment works in Avonmouth via a route around the
north of Bristol, rather than alongside the Frome Valley and through the centre
Diverting the flows will provide additional capacity for the
new developments and significantly reduce the risk of sewer flooding in the
The Frome Valley relief sewer is one of many projects
included in our £2 billion investment programme to maintain and improve
services between 2015 and 2020.
