Update by Rachel Rutter

Hello everyone!

You may have seen me on Moor Crescent, Durham this week, delivering letters informing you we will be implementing a rolling road closure along Moor Crescent, we expect this to be in place for 13 weeks, from Monday 1 July 2024 before moving onto Barnard Avenue. During this time small sections of the road will be closed and are subject to change depending on access requirements.

The first phase of the closure will be on Moor Crescent near to the field entrance.
