STATEMENT ISSUED ON BEHALF OF TEESWORKS
Please find below a statement on behalf of Teesworks regarding demolition work that will be taking place overnight between Saturday, 18 September and Sunday, 19 September
We would like to inform local people living close to the Teesworks site that, between 00:00 and 02:00 on Sunday, 19 September, a series of controlled explosions will be taking place at the site to demolish a number of structures.
These explosions will last around 10 seconds, with all of the work confined to the site. We would like to reassure residents that, if they hear a loud noise coming from Teesworks at this time, this is planned and controlled activity.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused however it is necessary to carry out the work during this time to ensure there is no disruption to train services on the nearby railway line, which otherwise would have had to be closed during its operational hours.
We thank those that are affected in advance for their understanding. This is all part of our redevelopment work to make the site investor-ready so that the major projects that will bring jobs for local people can progress as smoothly and quickly as possible.
Photography and video footage will be shared on social media.
