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 for the works at Great lime Road Near Palmersville Metro and the next stage of works planned....

Great Lime Road - We received the water quality test results today and are now installing the final connection's to the existing mains, thereafter we are tarmac reinstating and will have the traffic management removed by close of play Thursday evening.

From Monday 25th February until 6th March 2019 we will be progressing along Whiteley Road, Holystone in the grass verge and in the footway opposite to close off the existing network from the trunk main being abandoned. This will not cause any disruption to your water supply.

I will keep you updated as the works proceed.

Kind Regards
