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.

2. Tomorrow the 4th July 2019 for a duration of 3 weeks we will be commencing works in the block paved area adjacent Great Lime Road and Whiteley Road to seperate the connection of the live main and now abandoned trunk main of Great Lime Road, we will be self contained in a fenced off area and will have no impact to the road users or pedestrians on the footpaths.
