The construction phase of this project is now complete.

There may still be updates, so the project will remain here. We are still monitoring the project and will reply to any comments. So if you have any questions please feel free to comment or contact us here.


Durham Road, Spennymoor

We are upgrading the sewer network. This will increase the resilience and reliability of the network and will involve up sizing 240 meters of existing sewer pipe in the area of Wood Vue and the nearby Cow Plantation Nature Reserve. We will work closely with the local authority regarding the reinstatement of the nature reserve when the works are completed.

Update by Anthony Birkett

Hi Everyone

Following last week's brush with The Beast From The East, you'll be pleased to see that we are back on site today! Obviously the weather knocked us back a little, but we will now resume where we were and continue making progress up Wood Vue.

I know we planned to be further along by now so this has allowed access to the rear lane of Durham Road for a little longer. The weather has made it difficult for us to plan, but we will be there by the end of the week. I will update those affected by the lane closure nearer the time.

Take Care
