Farrans is working on behalf of Northumbrian Water to construct a new 34km pipeline across West Durham and Teesdale, to upgrade and improve our water infrastructure for decades to come. As part of this huge task, we have to create a tunnel under the Tees to carry the pipeline across the river. We’re currently sinking two deep shafts on either side of the river at Cotherstone and we’ll be using a Tunnel Boring Machine to drill the tunnel to link the two shafts.
It’s a tradition in the construction sector that such machines are ‘named’ at the start of a job like this, and we’d like to invite someone in the local community to pick a name for our machine. The person whose name is chosen will be invited to the ceremony on our site when the machine is lowered into position, with its name emblazoned across it. This is a great way to see a really exciting construction project at first hand and is bound to be a very inspiring experience! We’ll be inviting representatives from the local media, so this would also be a great opportunity to raise the profile of your school too.
To enter the competition, please use the QR code on the poster to access the entry form. Closing date is 18 November 2023. We’re also taking this opportunity to make a donation to a local charity. In the entry form, we’re asking for you to select one of four charities. The charity which receives the most votes will receive the donation.
We look forward to receiving your entry.
