Johnson Street, Gateshead

Johnson Street Gateshead - Overflow Screening Northumbrian Water is looking to improve the resilience and enhance the performance of the sewer network in the Gateshead catchment.

Update by Christine Taylor

Good afternoon,

The team have provided an update for me to share with all our cusotmers.

After completing our recent stage of works an 1800mm drive from the football pitch onto the work area at the bottom of Johnson Street, we had the task of withdrawing the tunnelling machine. This had to be carried out with tidal times Affecting our work hours.

Luckily the machine was lifted out and placed above ground with an 80 tonne mobile crane, and then onto a standing HGV lorry, with great success all parties were completed works by 18.00, 3 hours ahead of our deadline.

We now are sealing tunnels and shafts, removing other hydraulic and critical parts

Thank you to the site team for the update and the attached photo's.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend.
