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 Joan Tatters

Good Afternoon,

Just to let you know we will be removing the 3 way traffic lights from Swinley Gardens tomorrow night in time for the Easter weekend and we won't be implementing them after the holidays. However from Tuesday 23rd until 3 May we will introduce a contra-flow system to replace the lights as we need to continue with some excavations on the junction. I will be dropping in letters in the area tomorrow morning with the site team to let our customers know what is happening.

Apologies for the inconvenience and  if you have any questions please ask away.
