Killingworth Road - burst main update

We are working hard to repair a burst main on Killingworth Road - we will use this page to provide updates about the repair and also the work required to clean up and reinstate the affected area.

Update by Rachel Nelson

Hi there

Our engineers have been out on site this afternoon and confirmed that the dumpy bags in the river are secure.

As a precaution, we will be placing additonal sandbags in the area where the wall has slipped into the river. This will be done in the morning and we will also leave additional sandbags for our customers to use if you want to.

We will continue to monitor the situation and link in with the Environment Agency who will be monitoring the river levels.
