    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.

     

    Thursday 16 March - Beesfield Road, Farningham

    We are currently repairing a gas escape in Beesfield Road, outside number 42. For safety reasons, the carriageway is closed in both directions. A signed diversion is in place.

    We are hoping to finish the repair today and reopen the road tomorrow afternoon.


    Thursday 16 March - Lewisham High Street

    We are about to start work to renew a section of our pipework at this location near the police station. The scope of the project has been extended this week and after essential prep work, we are now aiming to start on Thursday next week. The project is expected to last six weeks from next Thursday.

    To ensure the ongoing safety of the public and our engineers, temporary traffic lights are in use. There is also a lane closure and contraflow in place.

    The temporary traffic management needs to remain in position while we wait to start the work. It will also be required during the job itself.

    Our website will be updated once the project is under way.

     

    Sunday 12 March - A3057 Alma Road, Romsey

    We are undertaking emergency repairs to our gas main in the A3057 Alma Road, Romsey. To ensure everyone's safety as we carry out our work, there is a lane closure in place at its junction with Winchester Road. This means there will be no right turn for traffic travelling southbound on Alma Road into Winchester Road. 

    We will be bringing in specialist equipment to complete our repair as we recognise this is a traffic sensitive location. We'd like to thanks motorists for their patience as we carry out this essential work. 

     

    Thursday 9 March - Malling Road, West Malling

    We're carrying out emergency repair work to our gas main in Malling Road, which is located opposite the David Lloyd leisure centre.

    Exploratory work has been ongoing since last week and although we have identified where the repair is required, specialist equipment has had to be ordered. This is due to be delivered on Wednesday next week, so two-way temporary traffic lights to ensure the continued safety of the public and engineers will be in place until then.

    We'd like to advise motorists to leave more time for their journey, as this is a busy route generally. In addition, other temporary lights unrelated to our work are also in use nearby.


    Tuesday 7 March - A752, Langmuir Road, Bargeddie, Glasgow

    We're carrying out emergency repair work to our gas main in the A752, Langmuir Road.

    To ensure everyone's safety while we work, we will be reducing the A752, Langmuir Road down to one lane near its junction with Dykehead Road from 7pm this evening. Two-way traffic lights will be in place to help manage traffic flow.

    Our teams will be working through the night to repair the main and fully reopen the road as soon as possible.

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

     

    Tuesday 7 March – Warburton Road, Southampton

    We're carrying out urgent repair work to our gas main in Warburton Road, Southampton. 

    To ensure everyone's safety as we work, the road is closed at its junction with the A3024 Bursledon Road. A signed diversion is in place for motorists. 

    We've also replaced the existing traffic lights at the junction with temporary three-way traffic lights and a temporary pedestrian crossing.  

    It's still too early to say how long our work will take to complete, but we're aware this is a busy route and will continue to work extended hours to complete this work as soon as possible.

     

    Monday 6 March - Burnt Ash Road, London, SE12

    We're carrying out emergency repair work to our gas main in Burnt Ash Road, London. 

    To ensure everyone's safety, a section of the road is closed southbound heading towards South Circular Road, from its junctions with Lee High Road and Eltham Road.

    Our work is progressing well, but specialist equipment is required to complete the repair. We expect that this will arrive on site near the end of this week.

    We're aware this is a busy route and will continue to keep you updated.

     

    Sunday 5 March - Golford Road, Benenden, Cranbrook

    We’re undertaking emergency repair work in Golford Road, Benenden, Cranbrook. 

    To ensure the safety of the public and our engineers, the road will be closed in both directions between the junctions of Chapel Road and Goddards Green Road. Access will be provided for residents.

    A signed diversion is in place for road-users and we’ll be doing our best to finish work as quickly as possible.

     

    Friday 3 March - Auckland Road, South Norwood

    We’re undertaking emergency repair work in Auckland Road, at its junction with Cypress Road, in South Norwood.

    To ensure the safety of the public and our engineers, the road will be closed at this location for four weeks. The pipe we are repairing is deep in the ground, which makes the job particularly challenging.

    A signed diversion is in place for road-users and we’ll be doing our best to finish work as quickly as possible.


    Friday 27 January – Langley Hill, Tilehurst, Reading   

    We need to carry out urgent repairs to a section of our gas main at the top of Langley Hill in Tilehurst, Reading. From Monday 30 January, we’ll be working at this location, near to the junction of Halls Road, Park Lane and Firs Road. Our repair will start around 9.30am, after the peak traffic period. Work has been ongoing nearby for the past few weeks. We have already carried our repairs in Firs Road. 

    For everyone’s safety while we are carrying out the repair next week, it will be necessary for two-way temporary traffic lights to be put in place in Langley Hill, just past the junction with Firs Road.  

    Electronic signs will be in place to notify motorists of the possible disruption to their journey ahead of work starting. These will be updated throughout the duration of the job.

    It’s too early to say how long our repair will take to complete, however we are aware this is a busy route and will be working hard to complete our work as quickly as possible.
