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 Joan Tatters

Good Morning,

Just another quick update as to where we are:-

Now that the scaffolding has been removed from the bridge you may be wondering how long we have to go on what has been an extensive refurbishment scheme for Cotherstone Pipe Bridge. Work is nearing completion and the next stage is to landscape on both sides of the river. Hope you will agree now the scaffold has been removed the refurbished bridge is looking great. The access road in the north field needs to remain in place for a little while longer to enable us to complete the landscaping works.  Upon completion of the landscaping works we will be in a position to remove the temporary access road which is the final part of the works.

Thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we have been working in your village for quite considerable time.

Don't forget if you want to ask us any questions please feel free!!
