We’re investing £1.3 million to upgrade our gas network in the Corrie Drive area of Motherwell.
This essential work involves the replacement of old, metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued and reliable gas supply.
Following discussions with North Lanarkshire Council, our work started on Monday 24 April 2017 and will last for approximately 45 weeks.
The project will be split into three phases and will involve replacing approximately 11km of gas mains.
Phase one – approximately 20 weeks
Our work started on Monday 24 April in the following streets: Alisa Avenue, Alisa Crescent, The Loaning, Sannox Drive, Logans Road, Pladda Street, Brodick Avenue, Corrie Drive and Kyle Street.
We may need to temporarily suspend some parking while we work
Phase two – approximately 10 weeks
From Monday 11 September, we’ll start replacing our gas main in Watling Street. To ensure the safety of motorists and our engineers, we’ll need to install temporary two-way traffic lights at its junction with Logans Road.
During this phase we will also be working in the following streets: Logans Road, Chesters Crescent and Antoine Avenue.
Phase three – approximately 15 weeks
From Monday 20 November, we’ll begin work in the following streets: The Loaning, Cumbrae Drive, Dechmont Avenue, Mearns Road, Scotia Street, Ladywell Road, Bruse Avenue, Wallace Street and North Orchard Street.
We may need to temporarily suspend some parking while we work.
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, Motherwell 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.
