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 Sarah Jayne Vickers

Good afternoon, good news we have 30 meters left of pipework to tie in the new housing estate at Illingworth Grove, into the newly laid surface water pipe along Whinney Hill and Old Elvet.

The resurfacing work which was due to happen a couple of weeks ago was unsuccessful due to parked cars. This week we have fenced off the car parking spaces to prevent people parking in them and allow the resurfacing to take place tomorrow and Friday.

Work at the side of The Swan and Three Cygnets is progressing slowly, due to this we need to work over the next couple of weekends 8 am till 6pm to ensure we are clear from site ready for Durham County Council bridge works due to start on the 20th July.

If in the meantime if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to comment below or use the ‘contact us’ function at the top of this page.
