• 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 or at night.

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

     


    Wednesday 19 September - Hook Road, Epsom

    We're continuing to carry out emergency repairs to our gas network in Hook Road.

    To ensure everyone's safety, we've needed to close Hook Road at its junction with East Street.

    Our engineers have managed to repair the leak on our gas main and work to resurface the road will now take place. Reinstatement can take up to five days to complete but we may only attend the site for a short time each day to carry out checks or to add the next layer of material. By ensuring each layer has completely set, it helps prevent potholes from appearing as the layers are stronger.


    Tuesday 18 September - A200 Jamaica Road, London, SE1

    Our engineers are continuing with the emergency repairs to our gas main near to the A200 Jamaica Road.

    We've closed an eastbound lane in the road between its junctions for Dochead and Abbey Street. Traffic can still travel in both directions.

    To ensure everyone's safety, residents of Wade House flats in Parkers Row have been temporarily evacuated and are being put up in hotels.

    Tuesday 18 September – Wimbledon Park Road, Southfields

    We’re continuing to carry out urgent work to our gas network in the Wimbledon Park Road area.

    Our repair work on Replingham Road is progressing well. To ensure everyone’s safety, Replingham Road remains closed between Wimbledon Park Road and Elsenham Street. A signed diversion route via Merton Road and Granville Road is in place for motorists.

    We’re also replacing nearby sections of our network in Wimbledon Park Road. Temporary three-way traffic lights are in place around our work area on Wimbledon Park Road at its junction with Augustus Road for safety and to manage traffic flow.

    In consultation with Wandsworth Council, we’ve needed to extend the duration of our temporary traffic lights at this junction by approximately three weeks, due to engineering difficulties experienced. We’ve now needed to extend our work area to outside Franco Manca restaurant to complete our gas main upgrades. We’ve also temporarily relocated the bus stop outside 259 Wimbledon Park Road approximately 20m southwards, near to the old post office.

    We’ll post further updates on our progress here early next week.


    Monday 17 September - Lilybank Place, Aberdeen

    We need to carry out emergency repairs to our gas main in Lilybank Place at its junction with Great Northern Road.

    To allow our engineers to work safety, we've had to close the junction - meaning there's no access to Great Northern Road from Lilybank Place. A local diversion route will be in place for motorists. 

    It's still too early to say how long it will take to complete our repairs, but we'll keep you updated here.
