Wapping Burn Rising Main Replacement

Northumbrian Water are working with communities to proactively manage flood and pollution risk. We are committed to providing a high quality service and have identified an opportunity to improve our sewer network to reduce the risk of pollution events from the rising main which runs in close proximity to the Wapping Burn water course.

Update by Anthony Birkett

Hi Everyone

Work is very much winding down at Wapping Burn. We have now successfully completed the pressure test mentioned previously and we are filling in the hole in the road between Swan Road and Hunter Road. Once we've finished that, we will finish building the chamber at the end of Hunter Road.

We are also carrying out pressure testing along Whitehouse Way.

Once these final tasks are complete we will permanently reinstate the road and move off site -The finish line is very much in sight!

Enjoy your weekend
