Fontburn Water Mains Upgrade

Northumbrian Water are working to improve the water network in the Bedlington and surrounding area. The work has been divided into various phases and will be carried out by both Northumbrian Water and Esh-Stantec. This work will include: the maintenance of existing assets (valves) and the installation of new assets on our strategic water mains from Fontburn to North Tyneside. Other works will include the de-commissioning of some existing water mains predominately in Bedlington area, and the installation of control and monitoring equipment across the general area mainly at Northumbrian Water sites. These improvements will contribute to greater control and monitoring of the water network in maintaining supplies for the future.

Update by Christine Taylor

Good afternoon,

I thought it prudent to provide a quick update of our works in the Bedlington area.

My name is Christine Taylor, the Customer Service Manager for Esh-Stantec carrying out the works.  Our site team, led by John Cartwright have a compound area behind the Red Lion Public House on Hartford Road.  Our work at the moment is mostly out of sight however you may notice our vehicles around the area. 

As our works progress in the area, myself or John will provide updates.

If you require any further information or you wish to discuss further please do not hesitate to contact me via the portal or on 03457 171100.

Thank you
