Sharpness Point Rising Main

Working with our framework partners, Esh-Stantec, Northumbrian water will be carrying out work to replace a failing pumping main from Sharpness Point Pumping Station to Percy Park, Tynemouth.

Update by Rachel Rutter

Morning All,

Hope you had a lovely bank holiday weekend 

Our site team has made great progress in the last couple weeks although faced difficulties with deliveries and strong wind. 

We are pleased to advise the rising main is now installed up to the slip road leading to the beach. Due to this we have been able to reopen the parking bays on Percy Garden and over the weekend the team have been able to shorten the lane closure allowing two way traffic from the slip road. 

Should you have any questions please email me on

Thank you
