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.

We're currently in attendance to a gas escape caused by third party damage to our governor in Holmead Walk, Poundbury.

We apologise for the inconvenience of being without your gas supply may cause and we would like to reassure you we are working hard to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.
