Harrowgate Hill Rising Main

Looking after the environment and reducing the risk of pollution are two of our top priorities. As part of this commitment, we plan to invest within the sewerage network to replace a failing pumping main from Mayfair Road Pumping Station to North Road, Darlington.

Update by Sarah Jayne Parvin

Good afternoon, you will notice we are clearing the site today as our investigation work comes to a close. As part of these investigations, we had to locate the main gas pipe along North Road up to the roundabout. Darlington Borough Council allowed us the weekend to investigate at the roundabout with traffic management whilst the roads were at their quietest however due to the depth we were unable to successfully locate the pipe.

After discussions with DBC they have agreed to give us a larger window of time to do this part of the investigation which is now scheduled to start on 6th April and removed no later than 11th April.

We will keep disruption to a minimum and would like to thank you for your patience during this time.
