Update Tuesday 19 December: We'll be finishing up and restoring the road surface in Burnbank Road, Hamilton this week. However, we will return to Burnbank Road in February 2018 for one week to carry out remaining upgrades.
We’re investing £300,000 to upgrade our gas network in Burnbank Road, Hamilton.
This essential work is part of a wider ongoing project in Hamilton and involves the replacement of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply.
Following discussions with South Lanarkshire Council, the work will start on Monday 18 September and will last for approximately 14 weeks.
Our work will begin in Burnbank Road on Monday 18 September at its junction with Yews Crescent. Temporary two-way traffic lights will be in place in Burnbank Road when required, moving along the eastbound carriageway as our work progresses. The lights will ensure traffic can flow past our work area safely and will be manually controlled to minimise disruption to motorists.
During our project, we’ll also be working in the following streets:
Further details on this project can be found in our project leaflet.
We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, Hamilton residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come. We always aim to minimise disruption and we will make every effort to ensure our works are completed as soon as possible.
