Meet the Contractor: County Durham and Tees Valley project


Would you like to find out more about the team delivering major upgrades to the water supply network in County Durham and Tees Valley?

Farrans has signed two contracts worth in the region of £100m with Northumbrian Water Limited to deliver improvement works which will provide a resilient supply of clean and clear water to its customers for decades to come.

In County Durham and Tees Valley, Farrans will be improving the underground network of water pipes, constructing a new 24km, 800mm diameter pipeline between Lartington Water Treatment Works and Shildon via Whorley Hill. The pipeline will cross underneath the River Tees and Alwent Beck to a depth of 50 metres. Around 200,000 customers will benefit from this work.

The project is expected to complete in 2025.

We are looking forward to making a positive difference to the local community and are holding a Meet The Contractor event. This will take place at Cotherstone Village Hall, Cotherstone, Teesdale, on June 5, from 3.30pm to 6.30pm.

A great chance to find out about the new pipeline, as well as community and supply chain opportunities.
