Cumbria pipeline installation at Walney faces problems

Engineers installing a pipeline which will come out into the side of Walney Channel are facing problems finishing the project before the wading birds return in the autumn.

The two-mile pipe being built by United Utilities will be used to carry treated wastewater from its plant in Roose safely into Morecambe Bay, Cumbria.

It is due to replace the outfall which discharges into the special conservation area at Roosecote Sand mudflats.

Work can only take place during low tide and must be complete by October.

The new pipe will run under the mudflats next to the sea wall coming out into the side of Walney Channel.

Project manager Sean McGahan said: "We've done an awful lot of planning to make sure we can do this work safely and with respect for local people and the environment.

"We're working around the overwintering season for birds and will be liaising closely with the port authorities when it comes to working in the channel."
