Tributes to the hard work of the NHS have been painted on roads across County Durham to show gratitude to frontline workers during the coronavirus outbreak.
Durham County Council has been installing rainbows and messages of thanks on the county’s roads to show support to dedicated NHS workers who are working through the pandemic.
The rainbows have been painted across the county on main roads in Durham City, Consett, Stanley, Chester-le-Street, Seaham, Peterlee, Sedgefield, Newton Aycliffe, Spennymoor, Bishop Auckland and Barnard Castle.
Working over the bank holiday weekend, the paintings were installed by the council at times when roads were quiet and this could be done safely. The locations of the temporary markings were determined by the council’s traffic team who assessed the safest areas for the messages to be placed before installing them.
The roads have been decorated in the hope that those working on the frontline will see the messages and feel supported by their community as they continue to help fight the virusLeave a comment
