Tyneside Water Main Cleaning

Our water mains cleaning programme of works has been ongoing now for five years and to date, we have achieved 221km of cleaning works to our mains. There are a number of pipe sections that we still need to clean, with a total length of 9.0km. We are starting this work in August 2018 and anticipate completion in the Summer 2019.

Good Afternoon

Just a brief update to our works on Great Lime Road, we are currently progressing well with the installation of the new main despite challenges of unchartered utilities and stone penning under the existing road construction, we are now aiming to pressure test and chlorinate the main starting monday11th february 2019 which will involce about 4 days work, whilst this is ongoing we will be carrying out other reinstatement and connection works in order to complete this works phase as quick as we can.

Kind Regards
