Re-use re-love

As part of their commitment to the Northumberland Line, you will see Morgan Sindall Infrastructure working in and with the community to enhance spaces for education and enjoyment. Morgan Sindall are committed to achieving net zero and as part of that commitment wanted to find ways to divert the waste from the early enabling de-vegetation works. These materials are natural vegetation that have been removed to make way for construction to start.


Some of the works at station sites created tons of wood chips and we were keen to find schools and locations where these chips could be and put to use.

Pictured above is the newly developed Jubilee Garden - The chips were used to enhance the various areas at Seaton Sluice School.
