Good afternoon all,
Our drainage work is progressing well on Sunderland Road and we expect to be complete as planned by the end of next week (Friday 30th August). We will be carrying out temporary reinstatement along the trench for the time being, however Gateshead Council will be returning to site in October to complete a larger area of permanent resurfacing.
We will also need to return to site after the Great North Run for up to four weeks to carry out further drainage work within the car park and footpath, however, this work can be carried out without the need for further traffic management on Sunderland Road.
We’d again like to thank you for your patience while we carry out our drainage improvement work I do hope that the temporary closure of The Drive hasn’t caused too much inconvenience, it certainly has helped to keep the traffic moving through the road works.
