Cotherstone Repair, Barnard Castle

We will be investing £800,000 in our strategic trunk mains network. The planned works are made up of the refurbishment of a pipe bridge and the repair of one of our large diameter raw water pipes.

Update by Sarah Jayne Vickers

Afternoon All,

I just wanted to give you all a quick update on site. As you can see from the pictures the bridge works are well underway and a vast amount of the repair bridge works have been complete. All metal work repairs should be complete over the next 2 weeks which then will allow to upgrade the water pipes.

Also called into Cotherstone Primary School where we got to look around the grounds. Take a look at the bottle green house picture! I was extremly impressed with this one! 

Once again MMB and Northumbrian water would like to thank you for your patience during the time sclae of the project.

Enjoy the Easter Bank holiday weekend
