Northumbrian Water is carrying out the work in the Castle Hills Farm area in order to future-proof the sewer networks for local residents.
Work started last week and as part of the investment scheme, which is expected to take seven months to complete, a brand-new pumping station will be constructe at the junction of the access road to Castle Hills House.
A new pipe will also be installed, which will go from the grazing field near the cottages and connect into the existing public sewer on Castle Terrace.
A temporary construction compound will be established in the field between Lillybrooke and Castle Terrace.
