Freight depot remediation Phase 1 works comprising breakout of existing reinforced concrete bases and building foundations, onsite crushing of materials and stockpiling of crushed materials onsite for future reuse; breakout of existing areas of asphalt hard standing and removal from site; excavation and onsite remediation of any exposed hydrocarbon contaminated soils, with removal from site of any contaminated material not remediated and remedial works to existing on site drainage manholes.

Former Freight Depot St James Road Gateshead NE8 3EQ


http://public.gateshead.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=externalDocuments&keyVal=MNVHOEHK3Y000

From the planning documentation:-

Outline Scope of Contract Works:

 Breakout of tarmac hardstanding areas between and to the south of the former
Freight Depot Building area and removal from site to tip.
(Volume 4,912m2 x 0.12m = 590m3)
 Breakout of reinforced concrete bases (average thickness 0.2m), platforms and
building retaining wall. (Total area 17,857m2, total estimated volume of concrete /
brick generated for crushing 7,360m3).
 A further 2,640m3 of concrete and brick is stockpiled in the middle of the site from the
previous removal of concrete bases and demolition of a building in the southern part
of the site.
 On site crushing (by mobile crusher) of 10,000m3 of concrete / brick to produce
processed / graded Type 1 and 6F2 hardcore for reuse on site.
 Stockpiling of crushed materials in designated stockpiling area (130m x 40m approx)
in eastern part of site. This will accommodate approx 12,000 m3 (ie allowing for 20%
bulking) in eg two stockpiles 130m x 16m x max 4.8m high with 40 degree side
slopes, with 8m wide haul route between.
 Any isolated areas of hydrocarbon contamination soils exposed beneath the broken
out bases will be excavated, and bioremediated / treated in small stockpiles in a
designated area on the site.
 All on site drains will be retained and repairs undertaken to existing manholes /replacement of previously stolen manhole lids.

Worked on previous contract here about 4+ years ago - site is B1 of those area in long term Gateshead plan for Housing http://www.gateshead.gov.uk/Building and Development/LiveGatesheadLoveGateshead/JointVenture/Sitemaps.aspx

Nice to see something happening again - the vegetation that was cut down previously has regenerated big style and once certain species get established sometimes difficult to clear and cause planning difficulties

In case of this site the Dingy Skipper butterfly already has case to take some of area to south boundary abutting the railway out of the development area

Former Freight Depot St James Road Gateshead - proposed work

Are there any firm plans for the freight depot site after remediation?
In addition to that information in long term Gateshead plan for Housing http://www.gateshead.gov.uk/Building.../Sitemaps.aspx

this from an earlier post on the forum

https://online.gateshead.gov.uk/EventTicketsOnline/pages/eventdetails.aspx?ky=2272

As far as I know no firm plans in place but would assume something taking shape "on paper" if Phase 1 Remediation scheme has gone through planning

Follow up to post 1216 of 29/08/13 I have above noted in recent days the sound of mechanical hammers operating in the area so took a wander around the site today Tuesday 15/10/13 AM and took the following pictures from various view points

But first a close up screen image of the site area as Google Maps image - the "white" material is the concrete etc deposited from the scheme of over 4 years ago. The concrete area include road network about site and plaforms of brickwork walls, fill material and concrete paving



and a scanned copy of what the area used to look like as seen on the 1898 2nd Edition Gateshead (East) and St Peters 1895 Map from the Godfrey Series - this development of railway sidings, engine sheds etc starting from 1873 and developed over the years lastly having a goods sorting shed - long gone

As viewed from St James Rd near Gateshead Stadium Metro station





The view from access point to site, off St James Rd near car showrooms/workshops









The view from Felling Bypass/Park Rd through palisade fence, close to bridge over the railway





Works being umdertaken by VHE Construction plc - utilising machines hired in from various local firms by the look of it

VHE website http://www.vhe.co.uk/ including this extract

VHE Construction plc is an industry leader with over 20 years of experience in the area of remediation of contaminated land, earthworks and highway infrastructure in the United Kingdom. In addition to our own extensive direct labour and plant resource, as part of Renew Holdings plc, we are able to draw upon resources from elsewhere within the £400 million turnover group.

Central Freight Depot site, Gateshead - Visioning document produced 2009

Following previous comments on this matter about what is to be provided on this site

The 94 page document noted below gives information on the "proposed use" for this site

http://www.newcastle.gov.uk/sites/drupalncc.newcastle.gov.uk/files/wwwfileroot/planning-and-buildings/planning/03.07_freight_depot_visioning_document.pdf

Produced for Newcastle City, Gateshead Council and the now defunct Bridging NewcastleGateshead by IDParnership Northern in 2009

Contents of the document are as set out in this screen print of the "Contents" page




Ignore "previous use" photograph in Section 2.2 Historic - that of course is the Greenesfield Depot, west of High Level Bridge where the ongoing Ochre Yards housing development is taking place

"Baltic Business Quarter", Quarryfield road area, Saltmeadows, Gateshead

Thanks for update.Is the nearby land around Quarryfield Rd. reserved for future College expansion-or general office/industry?
Total coincidence on this area:-

See Gateshead Developments thread post #1393 dated 29/11/13 about planning being granted for Erection of district energy scheme building with associated pipe and wire network and temporary site compound

Post http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpost.php?p=109270054&postcount=1393

From memory the long term plan for the area was "Commercial / High Technology" offices etc in area called "Baltic Business Quarter" but whether that still stands today

View appropriate documents on Gateshead Council website http://www.gateshead.gov.uk/ inputting of "Baltic Business Quarter"

This text from page 16 of http://www.gateshead.gov.uk/DocumentLibrary/Building/regeneration/HawksRoad.pdf

Character Area E: Baltic Business Quarter

Baltic Business Quarter (BBQ) is located immediately to the south of Gateshead Quays on a
21 hectares site between Hawks Road and Park Lane. The masterplan for this high-density
business quarter received outline planning permission in 2003 and infrastructure works for
the first phase commenced in 2005. Construction of the first two developments has
commenced, and the Business Quarter will eventually provide about 1.5 million square feet
of predominantly office accommodation creating an estimated 5-7,000 jobs. The site has
planning permission for business and general industrial uses and ancillary uses including
small scale retail, financial and professional services and restaurants/cafes (A1, A2, A3),
two hotels and 2000m2 of non-residential institution.


30/11/13 Addition

See this link http://www.redboxdesign.com/projects/mixed-use/baltic-business-quarter/

Hope this helps

Some further pictures by myself taken Thursday 12/12/13 in period approx 1100 - 1115 from St James Rd and now through the steel bar fence on the Felling By-Pass (now plastic sheeting has been removed), just east of bridge over the railway to show works to break up platforms etc of the former railway goods yard - images hosted on Photobucket

Looks as if works nearing completion with only one machine working on site

Those slabs always looked incredibly daunting to me from a development perspective when I worked over the road. Impressive to see how they've dealt with them. I bet the noise of breaking and crushing at the nearby housing was pretty wearing though!
