We are working to upgrade the gas network in the College Road area of Bromley.
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, our project began in March 2017.
We’ll be working to replace our old gas mains and services in the following roads over the coming months: College Road, Morgan Road, Crescent Road, Fairfield Road and Burnt Ash Road.
From Friday 18 May, we’ll be working in College Road, Crescent Road and Morgan Road for five weeks.
We need to temporarily close Morgan Road to through traffic between Fairfield Road and College Road. This will ensure the safety of motorists and our engineers around our work area. We’ll maintain access to residents from one end of the closure at all times. During this time, a signed diversion will be in place for motorists via College Road, London Lane and Fairfield Road in both directions.
While we’re working in College Road under two-way traffic lights, Crescent Road will become one-way eastbound from College Road towards Cambridge Road. Traffic wishing to travel westbound will be diverted via Cambridge Road, Paxton Road and into College Road. The remainder of Crescent Road between Cambridge Road and Lansdowne Road will be unaffected, with traffic able to travel both ways as usual.
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, Bromley residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
