Update by Phil Nixon


I'm Philip Nixon the Project Manager for the strategic water main diversion in Sunderland Road, Gateshead. This diversion is necessary due to the proposed re-construction of the highway by Gateshead Council. During the course of our works every effort will be made to minimise disruption. You will find a plan showing the extent of the area affected by our construction works in the planned works area of the project portal.
