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 to see Lawrence and the team today and been provided with an update. We've made pretty good progress along the footpath to the south of the Burn and have now reached the footpath on Cone Terrace. Over the next few days and into next week we will dig along this footpath and lay the necessary pipes in the ground. We will then resurface and we expect to remove the Traffic Lights by the end of next week. We are still on programme to finish on time, so haven't got too much longer left on site
