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 Apri 2021.

Update by Joan Tatters

Good Morning

Just thought I'd give you the good news......

Our work now is virtually complete at Denton Road, we will return in the Spring to do some seeding and landscaping hence we have left in the temporary haul road so the access then will not be detrimental to the burn. 

I will be dropping in a letter to the residents of Swinley Gardens, Denton Road, Dorset Road and Yewcroft this afternoon to let you know we are out of their hair!!!

There is no doubt we have been disruptive to the residents and we would like to take this opporunity to thank you all sincerely for your co-operation whilst we have been in the area. The work wasn't as simple as first thought, hence we encountered unexpected issues which meant we were around longer than anticipated.

Thank you again.
