    Emergency repairs

     

    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.

     

    Friday 24 February - Herbert Avenue, Poole

    Due to a gas main repair required we will be putting up three-way temporary traffic lights at the roundabout at the junction of Herbert Avenue and Arne Avenue, Poole.

    This will be in place from this evening so we can carry out our work safely. While it’s too early to say how long the repair will take to complete we expect it will continue into early next week. 

    We would like to thank motorists for their patience as we complete this vital emergency work.

    Thursday 23 February - Manor Roundabout, Weymouth 

    Our emergency work in this location is progressing well and we are continuing to monitor this site 24-hours a day.

    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.

    This week we hope to start using the new pipe which has been laid. This will allow us to decommission the old gas main which we’ve replaced. Following the completion of all engineering work, we will have some resurfacing to complete in Dorchester Road and then some site clearance.  

    We anticipate that we’ll be able to fully reopen Dorchester Road by early next week. 

    We are sorry about the inconvenience caused and thank road users for their patience while essential emergency works are carried out.
