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.

Update by Kevin McGargle

Good Afternoon,

Just a brief note for the works associated with Great Lime Road.

1. The works at Whiteley Road Holystone will be backfilled and reinstated by Wednesday 6th march 2019 evening, we will however need to return here again in the future to complete the works as this phase has just been investigatory.

2. On Thursday 7th we will be returning to 1-2 Kelvin Place off Great Lime Road to finalise the connection of the new to the old water main.

I will update you further as the works proceed.

Kind Regards

kevin McGargle
