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 afternoon,

Good News

Today we have laid the final course of the tarmac, and 'USL' have attended and started the joint to the bridge.  This will be completed in the morning and a final tidy up of the area.  The traffic management is due to removed later tomorrow allowing us to reopen the bridge on Sunday 23 September 2018 at 9am.

My next update will be when the bridge reopens.

Thank you once again for your patience and understanding.
