Update by Sarah Jayne Vickers

Good morning hope you have been enjoying the weather this week!

A quick update to advise what we have left to do before we leave site. All the pipework in now fully installed and pressure tested, there are some further tests to take place over the coming weeks. once all the tests and checks are complete we can abandon the old pipe and start to back fill and reinstate all the open excavations which is planned to start WC 3rd June 19 with a view for us to be cleared from site mid-June. Once we have left and demobilised, other utility companies will be in the area, and if you have any questions in relation to their works you will need to contact Gateshead Council.

Any questions in relation to these works please don’t hesitate to comment below, or us the contact us function at the top of the page.

Thanks for your patience throughout our works.
