Welcome to our interactive map of the proposals for HARP.
Using the zoom functions on the left-hand side of the map, you will be able to zoom in and out of specific areas to see more details.
By clicking on the building and car icons on the left, you will see a brief description of each part of the proposal and how this may impact the local area.
In this interactive map you will see outlined:
- COMPOUNDS – Our main working areas that are needed for constructing the new tunnels and connecting to the existing water network
- RED LINE BOUNDARY – This is the planning application boundary. Between the main compounds is a 24 metre corridor within which the new tunnel will be constructed underground. The areas within the red line boundary at the compound locations will be used for temporary activities including the storage of material and land re-profiling, access and parking, and environmental protection such as surface water lagoons.
- CONSTRUCTION TRAFFIC ROUTES – The way our construction vehicles will have to travel to access our compounds
- ROAD ALTERATIONS – Temporary road alterations along the construction traffic routes to facilitate the safe use of the local roads during our work
These plans were designed following a consultation that engaged thousands of people across Cumbria, Lancashire and Greater Manchester. Thank you to everyone that helped shape the future of water services in the North West.
Beela compound (view in map)
- This is where the Tunnel Boring Machine will finish constructing the route of the new pipeline
- Tunnel construction will be carried out from the Stangana compound, reducing activity, traffic, noise and disturbance on this site
- We expect work on this site to take around three years. The site may be in place for up to six years, with periods of no activity
- Access will be from Bendrigg Lodge Road and under the M6. The access under the M6 is shared with a public right of way, which will be temporarily closed during the main construction work
Stangana compound (view in map)
- This is the main area for the Swarther section, where construction for the new tunnelled pipeline will start
- The compound will be split either side of Old Scotch Road, with site cabins, car parking and pipeline construction in this area. Some work will be required within Yorkshire Dales National Park
- Where our working area interfaces with public rights of way, we will create temporary alternative routes
- We will put in measures to protect the Bronze Age cairn
- We expect work here to take around four years, but the site may be in place for up to six years.
- Our work here is split into three phases: enabling works, construction works and commissioning works
- Access to the Stangana compound will be from Old Scotch Road
Beela Traffic Route (view in map)
- Access to this site would be taken from Junction 37 of the M6, along the A684, Old Scotch Road, Reservoir Road and Bendrigg Lodge Road. We would form a haul road off an existing access track beneath the M6.
- To accommodate construction vehicles, we are proposing a series of road widening and passing places
- We have reached an agreement in principle with National Highways (formerly Highways England) to transport the Tunnel Boring Machine directly to the M6, to minimise disruption on local roads
- Typically, there would be between two and five construction vehicle movements per hour along this route. 35% of these movements would be light vehicles and 65% would be HGVs
- There would be a peak of around 10 movements per hour for up to eight weeks of our work here. 20% of these movements would be light vehicles and 80% would be HGVs
Stangana Traffic Route (view in map)
- Access to this site would be taken from Junction 37 of the M6, heading south on the A684 and Old Scotch Road
- We are proposing a series of road widening and passing places to accommodate our construction vehicles
- Traffic movements here would vary on each stage of work undertaken. The peak would be during the main construction phase when tunnelling is underway
- Typically, there would be between two and six construction vehicle movements per hour along this route. 25% of these movements would be light vehicles and 75% would be HGVs
- There would be a peak of around 17 movements per hour for around 18 months of our work. 15% of these movements would be light vehicles and 85% would be HGVs
- Access to both the Beela compound and Stangana compound would include the same stretch of Old Scotch Road, between the junction of Reservoir Road and the A684.
- Typically, there would be between three and 10 construction vehicle movements per hour on this stretch
- There would be a peak of around 17 movements per hour on this stretch for 18 months of our work
