As part of the regeneration of Sunderland Port, the scheme was commissioned to restore the important access road and ensure current and future traffic flows could be accommodated.

Remedial works to the 3km Port perimeter road were completed, including an abundance of reinforced concrete road re-construction with concrete repairs to dilapidated areas. A new 350m carriageway was constructed to create a larger dock-site area for loading/offloading ships within the Port.

Works will ensure the Port maintains an efficient import/export approach and provide additional space for additional business operations.

Filey Flood Alleviation Scheme


Filey Flood Alleviation Scheme - £2m

Filey Flood Alleviation Scheme is vital project which will protect 739 homes and non-residential properties in the Yorkshire coast town of Filey from flooding. Delivered by Esh’s civil engineering division, a series of earth embankments, ditches, and temporary flood storage areas will be constructed at different locations around the edge of Filey.

Together with new drainage channels and culverts, the storage areas are designed to catch the flows of water from surrounding land during extreme rainfall before they reach the town. The flood water will be temporarily stored before being released at a controlled rate into the existing urban drainage system and ravines once a storm has passed.

An established public footpath will be installed and the surrounding land will be rotavated and wildflower seeded to enhance the land around the flood storage areas.

Filey has a history of surface water flooding, with records of properties flooding dating back to 1985 and most recently the major flood event in the summer of 2007. As well as homes and businesses, the scheme will also help to protect Filey’s only secondary school, the Scarborough to Hull railway line, which is routed via Filey, and the town’s two access roads.

Redcar Gatehouse


Redcar Gatehouse - £1.3m

Delivered by Esh’s civil engineering division, the scheme based at the entrance of the former Redcar steelworks has delivered a grand state-of-the-art entrance for a new and long-anticipated internationally distinctive industrial zone in the Tees Valley.

Demolition of the existing gatehouse paved the way for a new modern gatehouse building constructed with structural insulated panels. Car parking areas were formed to the east and west of the entrance – with the use of gabion retaining structures to retain the existing embankments – while hard landscaped footpaths and pedestrian islands were constructed to form a link between the parking facilities and gatehouse.

A key focal point of the development is a purpose-built 3.7-metre-high LED screen which was installed onto the existing bridge as a feature to showcase the capabilities of the industrial zone. Final decoration was provided with bespoke street lighting, modern landscaping, and planting of mature trees to create a welcoming, eye-catching entrance for visitors and international investors.
