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 Gabrielle Ward


Since my last update a couple of weeks ago, you may have noticed we have been busy setting the site compound up along Lemon Grove. This is now fully established, and we are ready to start our main construction work.

 As of next week, the first stages of our work will begin on North Road and Mayfair Road. The junction accessing Mayfair Road from North Road will be closed from Monday 19th July for around 4-6 weeks. Access to Mayfair Road will be maintained via Glebe Road.

There will also be a bus stop closure on North Road, adjacent to Longfield Road. While this bus stop is temporarily out of use, we kindly ask you to use the next nearest bus stop which is along Longfield Road. I have attached a plan below which shows you the location of our work, along with bus stop locations and road closures.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. However, myself and the Site Team are always happy to help should you require any assistance.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment below.

On behalf of the Project Team, we would like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
