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 12 December - A259 Eastbourne Road, Seaford
We've been carrying out urgent repairs to our gas network in Eastbourne Road since Monday 10 November.
Our engineers are working to fix our gas main at its junction with Sheep Pen Lane, Sutton Road and Alfriston Road. We've completed several repairs to our gas main so far, but we have further work still to carry out.
To ensure everyone's safety, temporary traffic lights remain in place around our work area. We'll continue to manually operating these traffic lights during peak hours to manage traffic flow on this busy route.
We've also closed Sheep Pen Lane at its junction with Eastbourne Road to allow our engineers to dig safely. A signed diversion is in place for motorists via Eastbourne Road and Hartfield Road.
We expect to complete our work by Monday 17 December. We'll keep you updated on our progress here.
Thursday 6 December - Totton Bypass, Totton, Southampton
We're continuing to carry out emergency repairs to our gas main in the Totton Bypass area.
For everyone's safety while we carry out our work, a 30mph speed limit remains in place for motorists heading westbound on Totton Bypass towards Rushington Roundabout.
We're also working in Eling Lane near its junction with Rose Road. Temporary traffic lights are currently in place around our work area for safety. From 6.30pm on Friday 14 December, we'll need to temporarily close Eling Lane over the weekend to complete our repair. We expect to be able to reopen Eling Lane by Sunday evening (16 December).
Thursday 6 December - Carntyne Road, Glasgow
Our urgent repair work in Carntyne Road is ongoing.
To ensure everyone's safety, temporary four-way traffic lights remain in place at its junction with Todd Street.
Our pipe requires a complex repair and we'll be carrying out this work using specialist equipment. We're continuing to plan when we will carry out these works in close consultation with Glasgow City Council. We'll provide you with an update once details are confirmed.
Our engineers are regularly monitoring the site until a permanent repair to our network can be completed.
We'd like to thank local residents and road users for their patience while this essential work is carried out.
