Sunderland Strategic Transport Corridor (Phase 3)

Northumbrian Water is planning to carry out water and waste-water diversions and modifications of our network in advance of the Sunderland Strategic Transport Corridor Phase 3. The new dual carriageway which is planned to start in the Summer of 2019, will link the new south side road infrastructure of the Northern Spire bridge to A183 St Mary's Boulevard - A1231 St Michael's Way roundabout. Our supply partners, Esh-MWH will be undertaking this works on our behalf.

Update by Dave Eden

Afternoon everyone.

I'd like to give you all an update on the water main diversion works on SSTC Phase 3

Farringdon Row.

As promised last time we have removed the 3 way lights on Farringdon Row and the road is fully open. Please bear with us whilst we complete the few outstanding footpath reinstatements. No further disruption is intended in this area for the water mains.

Hannover Place.

As mentioned last time, Hannover Place is now open except for the area fenced off outside the Saltgrass which remains passable with care. This area should be resurfaced at some point next week and opened to traffic. There are still some private connections and the final resurfacing to some area to do in the upcoming weeks but these should have minimal impact.

The area of footpath fenced off outside the timber yard will also be reinstated next week though please bear in mind that this will not be the final product as some future changes are still required.

Deptford Terrace

The extra work on Deptford Terrace near the Bus Depot including the lane closure under 2-way traffic lights and the excavation outside the bus depot entrance is nearing completion. We have backfilled all the excavations and intend to resurface at some point next week along with the area outside the Saltgrass.

The fenced off area in the verge outside Liebherr will remain closed for the time being.


I've also added a few photos for those who're interested.


Thanks for your on going patience.

Dave Eden
