Escomb Rising Main

Project to replace a failing pumping main from Escomb Pumping Station to Etherley Moor.

Update by Sarah Jayne Vickers

Good morning, further on from my previous update re the traffic management. It has been decided, due to unforeseen circumstances to close the road. This closure will run between the hours of 9.30 and 3pm on the 7th February. During this time a diversion will be put in place, I have included a map below to show the route.

Thank you for your patience.
