Details about the project
The upgrade began on Monday 23 July and to help keep any inconvenience to a minimum, we have planned our work to be carried out in three phases (detailed bel0w).
The work shouldn’t impact your home and you shouldn’t see any interruptions to your gas supply. We’ll need to dig in the street but we’ll try to keep any inconvenience to a minimum. Rest assured, we’ll put everything back to normal once we’ve finished. You can find out more about this by reading our putting everything back to normal leaflet (PDF document).
The work is part of a larger project to decommission the Tyne Bridge gas main that has been in place since the bridge opened in 1928 and has come to the end of its serviceable life.
