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, work is progressing well on site and this week we are pressure testing the pipe laid from the Felling bypass to Aldi. Once the pressure testing is complete we can start to reinstate the excavations.  As well as the pressure testing there is going to be a short water isolation 2.45hrs on this side of the bypass, which will affect a small number of buildings, you will be notified if this will included your address by the close of play Wednesday 13th Feb. Work will continue on the high street side which will include excavations, valve changes and pressure testing. I have added a few photos below.

As always if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us on the 'contact us' at the top of the page.
