We are working to upgrade the gas network in Abbotts Road, Sutton.
We are investing £36,000 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 Sutton Borough Council, we will start work on Monday 5 February.
Due to the location of our gas main and to ensure the safety of everyone around our work we need to make Abbotts Road one-way, westbound from St Dunstan’s Hill to Matlock Crescent with a signed diversion via Matlock Crescent and Church Hill Road.
The final stage of our work requires us to work at the junction of Matlock Crescent and Abbotts Road. We will need to install temporary multi-way traffic lights for this stage to ensure everyone’s safety and to keep traffic flowing.
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.
