WARWICKSHIRE, UK, July 4, 2007 -- The sinking of a huge 9m diameter shaft at the Worcester Sewage Treatment Works (STW) has marked the significant progress made by leading infrastructure specialist Morgan Est, which is upgrading the facility as part of a £4 million project for Severn Trent.

Morgan Est is constructing a new pumping station at the site in Bromwich Road, which includes new screens and screening handling plant, a new washwater pumping station, a new liquor returns pumping station and all associated roadways, footpaths, ducting and pipelines.

"Work is progressing well at the Worcester STW site and this shaft sinking marks a major milestone in the project," says Zoe Lonsdale. "The new inlet pumping station will be able to cope with 2,449 liters per second of pass forward flow compared to the 1,751 liters per second that the current station receives. Once construction is complete the existing facilities will be demolished."

The Worcester scheme is being carried out under Severn Trent Water's five-year, multi-million pound AMP4 program of water infrastructure and environmental improvements in the Severn Trent Southern Area which covers Worcestershire, South Warwickshire, Birmingham and Gloucestershire. Morgan Est has been employed to provide a range of services from construction and process-related civil engineering, to mechanical and electrical installations including both asset renewal and new construction.

The project is due for completion in December 2008.

Morgan Est is a leading provider of infrastructure services operating in the UK tunneling, civil engineering, water, utilities and rail sectors. It is part of Morgan Sindall plc, the construction and urban regeneration group. The Group operates through five specialist divisions: fit out, construction, infrastructure services, affordable housing and development.
