We are working to upgrade the gas network in Dingwall Road, Croydon.
We are investing £397,000 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 Croydon Council, we will start work on Friday 30 March. Over nine weeks, our engineers will progress along Dingwall Road in three phases:
Phase one – approximately one week
We’ll begin our work on Friday 30 March on the roundabout in Dingwall Road at the junction with Lansdowne Road (northbound) where there will be a temporary lane closure. To ensure everyone’s safety and maintain traffic flow we need to install temporary four-way temporary traffic lights on the roundabout.
Phase two – approximately eight weeks
From Monday 9 April we’ll be working in Dingwall Road between Sydenham Road and Lansdowne Road. This section of Dingwall Road will temporarily be made one way with access for southbound traffic only. A signed diversion will be in place for northbound traffic with some parking bays suspended in Dingwall Road.
Towards the end of phase two we'll be working on the roundabout in Dingwall Road at its junction with Lansdowne Road (southbound). To ensure everyone’s safety we will need to install temporary four-way temporary traffic lights on the roundabout.
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.
