Transporting gas is a day-to-day essential service. Pipelines are largely out of sight and mostly out of mind, but when repairs are needed or pipes need to be upgraded, we have to dig up roads or footpaths. 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.
We are sorry about the inconvenience caused and thank road users for their patience while essential emergency works are carried out.
Monday 16 October – Finchampstead Road, Wokingham
We're carrying out emergency repairs to our gas main in Finchampstead Road, Wokingham.
To ensure everyone’s safety, we’ll have temporary two-way traffic lights in place that will be manually controlled during peak hours to keep the traffic moving.
We hope to complete this work and remove our traffic lights by Wednesday 18 October.
Monday 9 October - Yester Road, Chislehurst
We’ve been carrying out emergency repairs on our gas main in Yester Road at its junction with Lubbock Road in Chislehurst.
To ensure the continued safety of the public and our engineers, it became necessary to close the road at the bridge.
The repair is more complex than we originally thought, so we've had to revise our timescales. All being well, we now hope to complete our works and fully reopen the road by Friday 27 October.
A diversion will be in place for motorists.
Monday 9 October – Millburn Road, Inverness
We're carrying out essential upgrades to our gas network in Millburn Road, Inverness, from 6am on Wednesday 11 October.
To allow our engineers to work safely, a single lane closure will be in place in the westbound carriageway between Raigmore Interchange and Millburn Roundabout.
Access to local businesses and driveways will be maintained at all times.
All being will well, we're aiming to complete our upgrade at 7am on Thursday 11 October and will update you on our progress here.
Monday 9 October – A760, Kilbirnie (KA25)
While making good the road surface and carrying out safety checks, we have identified that further emergency repairs are required on our gas main in the A760 between Kilbirnie and Lochwinnoch.
A signed diversion remains in place for motorists. It is hoped that repairs will take around one week to complete. We’ll keep you updated on our progress.
