Land remediation specialist Sirius Engineering Group is scouring local sources for 250,000 tonnes of waste to complete the infilling of one of the Tyne’s shipping docks in South Shields.
Already one million tonnes of fill material has been used at the dock but Sirius is now responsible for the final phase of infill work on the Port of Tyne’s Victorian Tyne Dock. Once completed, the site will be released for commercial development.
Sirius is looking to businesses in the area for their surplus construction or earthworks material.
Sirius Group director Patrick Kane said: “This complex and demanding project initially commenced as part of the works associated with the New Tyne Crossing, where a large part of the Dock was filled with material dredged from the River Tyne during the construction of the second Tyne Tunnel. This was a fantastic way of reusing waste material and we’d love to be able to complete the infill work in a similarly sustainable way.”
