Update by Mark Robinson

Afternoon all,

I posted this morning with a brief update of our works along Jesmond Dene Rd and while we are well underway with our excavation and placement of concrete blinding, we will have to leave our pump running over the weekend to control ingress of water from the pipe. By doing this, we ensure our temporary works and excavation aren't compromised, as well as avoiding any flooding on the carriageway.

As I mentioned previously, there will be a hose housed within a ramp at the pedestrian crossing so please do take care when approaching. We will be working tomorrow and dropping by on Sunday to make sure everything is safe.

Have a great weekend.
