Killingworth Road closed for planned works

Killingworth Road is closed this weekend (Fri 13 to Sun 15 Jan) to allow planned gas main works to take place.

The road is fully closed between Back Gallalaw Terrace (north) and Salters Bridge, near the city boundary. Salters Bridge, off Salters Lane, is also closed and there is no through route via Hollywood Avenue in either direction.

Access will be maintained to properties on Back Gallalaw Terrace throughout the duration of the works.

Northern Gas Networks is carrying out the works on behalf of Newcastle City Council as part of a programme of essential maintenance and upgrades on this main route in and out of the city. This will also provide improvements for bus and Metro passengers.

We appreciate your patience while these works are completed.

Further information is available from Northern Gas Networks on 0800 040 7766 (option 7).
