Cone Terrace, Chester Le Street

Northumbrian Water alongside their experienced partner Esh-Stantec is planning to divert a pipe bridge in your area as part of the wider Chester Burn improvement work which is being carried out by Durham County Council.

Update by Anthony Birkett

Hi Everyone

I've been to site today to check in with Lawrence and the team on how we are getting on. There was so much visible progress from my last visit last week, you can really see how far we've come.

We've landscaped the grassed area North of the burn, and installed the pipe across the burn. We've also started on the manhole just to the South of the footbridge. Next week we'll start laying the pipes along the footpath before getting to the road on Cone Terrace. Further updates will be provided as we go on dates etc and we'll be in touch with those directly impacted.

I've attached a few photos illustrating how far we've progressed
