Part closure of Killingworth Road from Monday 27th March

March 20, 2017 10:52 AM
Looks like a little quicker job than at first anticipated, as Northern Gas Networks (NGN) says it will be carrying out further preparatory work for an essential gas mains diversion project at Killingworth Road in Gosforth, Newcastle, from Monday 27 March.
The major project to divert a length of gas main away from a section of carriageway due for improvement will begin in earnest later this year, as part of a wider programme of essential maintenance and upgrades on this main route in and out of the city.
NGN will carry out work on behalf of Newcastle City Council and Nexus from Monday 27 March to Friday 31 March. In order for engineers to complete this work safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to temporarily close one lane heading northbound on Killingworth Road between Back Gallalaw Terrace (north) to 20m beyond Killingworth Road/Salters Bridge during this time.
It's expected the traffic management in place will cause extended journey times, so people are advised to leave extra time for travel.
Access to properties on Back Gallalaw Terrace will be maintained throughout the works and bus companies have been notified of the lane closure in place.
