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 Gabrielle Ward

Good Morning, 

From Joans previous update, I thought I'd take the opportunity to introduce myself. I'm Gaby, and I'm going to be leading on the Stowell Street site of the project with Michael and the team. Some of you may have met me already as I have visited some of the sites on this programme. On Monday, Michael and I visited Stowell Street to drop off some letters along St Andrews Street regarding the work we are going to be carrying out on the 7th October. For those of you I didn't speak with, to view the letter please click here.

From Monday 7th October, we will be carrying out work on the corner of Gallowgate and Stowell Street (outside Chicken Cottage) for upto 2 weeks. A diversion is going to be put into place, which I have attached a copy of the planned route for those of you travelling in the area. Click here to view.

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch!
