Project Pipeline: County Durham and Tees Valley

This work will boost the resilience of supply links between our reservoirs and treatment works in Teesdale, and parts of central and southern County Durham. Our investment will increase reliability, reduce leakage and provide high quality drinking water for customers for decades to come. This phase of the project - Phase 1 - will construct a new replacement pipeline from Lartington Water Treatment Works to Gainford and a new strategic transfer main between Whorley Hill SR and Shildon SR.

Update by Karen Alexander

Good afternoon,

To the communities and businesses around Cotherstone and Lartington who use the B6277, we would like to extend our sincere thanks for your patience and understanding during the recent road closure. This was necessary for the construction of the new pipeline through County Durham and Tees Valley.

Our teams worked hard to ensure we completed the task within the planned time scale and we were able to re-open the road on the evening of Wednesday 5th June as intended.

Once again, our apologies for the inconvenience this closure may have caused and thank you for your patience while this essential work was taking place.

Kind regards

Karen Alexander

Farrans’ Stakeholder and Social Value Co-ordinator
