Strategic Water Main Diversion, Sunderland Road, Gateshead

Diversion of approximately 300m of 20” strategic water main in Sunderland Road either side of the Gateshead Highway in advance of highway improvements.

Update by Sarah Jayne Vickers

Good morning all, as you will see we have moved into Sunderland Road this week to carry out the water mains diversion. There is traffic management in places, as well as some footpath closures, which have been put in place for the public's safety. There have been a few observations over the last week, were people are walking along the road rather than the alternate footpaths. Although this road is usually quiet, could we please ask you to use alternative routes/footpaths displayed.

As always if you have any question please don’t hesitate to contact us on here, or alternatively you can speak to one of the guys on site who will be happy to help.

Thank you and enjoy your weekend!
