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,

We have been provided with an update from our site team.

As you will be aware we were hoping to remove all the traffic management in the area on the 10 September 2021, please see our update below.  . 

Derwentwater Road/Abbeyfield - This work will be completed tomorrow and the road/junction reopened by 6pm, 10 September 2021  

Johnson Street - The closure on the junction of Johnson Street and Yetholm, has been extended by one week due to Covid delays.  Our health and safety team have assessed to check whether we could continue the work on 2 way lights, however this has been deemed unsafe.  We now expect this section of road to be opened again on the 17 September 2021 by 6pm.

We will keep our customers informed via the portal.  We do want to thank you all for your continued patience and understanding whilst we complete this works.
