Durham City Sewer Network Improvements

We are planning work to improve the performance of the sewer network in Durham City and improve your environment.

Update by Colin Butler

Good Morning Everyone,

Another brief update from our team in Durham:

We continue to make decent progress in Old Elvet despite some challenging circumstances and the odd design tweak. We're now approaching the Court Lane junction on our way up Old Elvet and will be expected to work across the junction from Monday onwards. It shouldn't take more than a week to get across and get reinstated at which time we'll be progressing through the parking bays opposite the Dun Cow.

On Monday 23rd March we'll be starting with a Second squad on Whinney Hill installing new drainage with another set of Traffic Management. After close discussion with Durham County Council we've agreed that this short term disruption will enable us to finsh all the works far sooner than currently programmed. I'll continue to update you all on how the works progress but in the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact me on or my colleague Sarah, on alternatively; our contact dertails can be found on the public information board located at Green Lane. As ever, our team onsite will be more than willing to help with any issues or concerns that you raise directly. I hope you all have a lovely weekend and please stay safe
