We are working to upgrade the gas network in Burnt Ash Lane.
You may be aware that we carried out work in the nearby area earlier in the year. We now need to return to continue our work on Burnt Ash Lane. We are investing £540,000 to replace our old gas mains and services with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to the local area.
In consultation with Bromley Council, we will start work on Wednesday 3 January.
We’ll be working in Burnt Ash Lane from Nichol Lane towards Southover. To ensure everyone’s safety our work will progress in 100-metre sections under temporary traffic lights. The temporary lights will be monitored from 7am to 7pm seven days a week. This should keep disruption to a minimum, but we still advise you to allow a little extra time to complete your journey.
We will be working Monday to Friday between 7am and 7pm, Saturday between 8am and 4.30pm and Sunday between 8am and 1pm. We are mindful of those people who live in the area, and will try to keep noisy activity to a minimum where possible.
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, people will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
Update - 12 March 2018
In consultation with Bromley Council, we suspended our work on 11 February 2018. We are not able to return to complete our works until the refurbishment of Grove Park train station has been completed.
