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 morning,

Following the works last year we need to carry out essential maintenance to the manhole cover and frame and the surrounding tarmac. 

To enable the works to be carried out safely, the bridge will be closed to vehicles only for a period of 72 hours.  Newburn bridge will be closed from 6am on Tuesday 24th September and will reopen on the morning of Friday 27th September 2019.

Pedestrians will still be able to access and use the bridge throughout of works. 

Throughout this time we will be updating the portal with our progress daily.

We thank you in advance for your patience whilst we carry out this work.  Please contact me direct via this portal or by contacting 03457171100 to discuss this work further.
