Repair Work to Newburn Bridge

Following our water main burst at the location of Newburn Bridge, we alongside, Newcastle City Council and our supply partner, Esh-MWH are currently repairing our underground assets. This work will help secure and maintain water supplies in the future, and will not affect your water supplies.

Update by Christine Taylor

Good evening,

We have been provided another update from our site team.  Today we have installed the higher kerbs on the roadside today and set the manhole covers within the carriageway.

Tomorrow will see the beginning of the surfacing works to the carriageway with the base been laid, followed by the plaining in the afternoon. The final course will be laid on Friday morning.

We are getting very close to the end now.

Glad to hear the high winds did not stop our team from working to programme.
