Springwell Enhancements Project

Northumbrian Water proposes to construct a new underground service reservoir on land it owns off Mount Lane, along with related pipe work in the local area, in a £56m project to commence Spring 2023, following preparatory work on site. The proposed project will not only make the water supply to customers in Springwell Village and the surrounding areas more secure, but will also enable us to support the wider Wearside and South Tyneside areas with a more reliable and resilient water supply for many years to come. The reservoir would strengthen and future-proof the company’s existing network in the area, providing storage for around 50,000 properties in South Tyneside. In addition the new reservoir will enable us to provide improved resilience to the water networks to the east of Springwell Village, benefiting a further 200,000 properties in South Tyneside and Wearside.

Bus diversion Routes

Please see maps for service 56 & X1 diversion.

X1 doesn't miss any stops for the Springwell Road closure.

56 cannot serve 2 pairs of stops at Peareth Hall Road with the nearest alternatives being around 300 to 350 Metres away. 

Given the additional mileage the buses will need to cover, and the volume of displaced traffic, there may be delays to buses at times.  This will be mitigateted on service 56 with the addition of an extra vehicle, however the same cannot be done with the X1.
