Sheringham Sinkhole Update.
It is going to be very busy at the sinkhole over the next 2 weeks. With the erection of the scaffolding over the hole nearing completion and the new large concrete pipe in place the fitting of the 80 metre liner will go ahead. This involves pumping 360,000 litres of boiling water under pressure into the hole. A specialist vehicle will be on site for this. Once the resin has become heated and attached to the existing sewer then cooled water is pumped in the same way to set the liner.
Once all connections are established then the first stage of back filling will take place up to the level of the second sewer which will then be repaired as it was also damaged in the void. Finally the reinstatement of the permanent water mains in the upper levels will be completed before the hole is filled.
Importantly Sheringham is open for business and all Carnival events will take place. Free parking for 30 minutes is still in operation on Morris Street Car Park.
This Saturday 27th July over 400 Harley Davidsons will be riding into town around midday and will be on display in the town centre until around 4pm. This is followed by Carnival week the following weekend.
