• Roadworks


    We look after more than 74,000 kilometres of pipes across our network. Making sure these pipes deliver your gas safely and reliably means that we need to upgrade or repair them at times. We know that roadworks can be frustrating, but our essential work keeps you, your family and local community safe.

Here’s some of our major upgrade projects: 

    Chichester, College Lane

    Dumbarton, Glasgow Road

    Glasgow, City Centre

    Edinburgh, Broughton Street

    Edinburgh, Saughton Road North

    Erksine, Erskine Bridge

    Lambeth, A23 Brixton Road 

    Maidstone, Tonbridge Road

    Peckham, Rye Lane

    Raynes Park, West Barnes Lane 

    West Malling, Malling Road

    Woldingham, Station Road

    Emergency gas pipe repairs


    When upgrading pipes or installing a new connection, we can plan the roadworks in advance. But when safety is at stake we must respond quickly and efficiently, and this may mean having to carry out streetworks at very short notice or at night. Safety is at the heart of all we do, but we’re sorry if our emergency repairs inconvenience you.


    Monday 22 July, 9.45pm: Southwark, Manor Place

    Our engineers have completed emergency repairs to our gas network in Manor Place, Southwark following damage by a third party.

    The road has now reopened and we're starting to allow people back into their properties although some may still require safety checks to be carried out - our teams on site will be able to provide residents with further information. 

    Some properties may still be affected by an electricity outage - further updates from UK Power Networks can be found here.

    Local train services have been affected and trains between London Blackfriars and Wimbledon / Denmark Hill may be disrupted - further details from National Rail can be found here.

    We'd like to thank local residents for their patience while we worked to complete our repair.
