The upgrade is part of a larger programme to decommission the gas mains that run through the Tyne Bridge and have been in place for almost 100 years. By installing modern plastic pipes, NGN will ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for many years to come.

Engineers started work on the second phase of the project on 20 August. 

Richie Manuel, business operations lead at Northern Gas Networks, said: “Our essential work to upgrade the gas mains in the Osborne Road area of Newcastle is progressing well. We’re continuing to work closely with Newcastle City Council to minimise the inconvenience caused to customers and road users and we’d like to thank everyone for their continued support as we work to complete this project as safely and quickly as possible.”
