Details about the project
Northern Gas Networks is carrying out an essential upgrade to the gas distribution network at Earsdon Road and Fairfield Drive in Whitley Bay.
We’re investing £450,000 to replace 3.5 kilometres of old metal gas main with more durable plastic pipes, in a project that will begin on Monday 17 June, 2019 and last 17 weeks. It’s been planned in close conjunction with North Tyneside Council.
In order for our engineers to carry out the work safely and efficiently, and to protect members of the public, we will need to introduce some temporary traffic management at various stages of the project.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused but this work will ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to the area for the future.
