Our work to upgrade the gas network along A287 Hindhead Road is ongoing. We're working to ensure a continued safe and reliable supply of gas is delivered to the local community.
We restarted our work earlier this month following a brief pause over the festive period to help minimise disruption in the area.
Our engineers are currently working along the A287 and progressing towards its junction with Nutcombe Lane. For everyone's safety and to manage traffic flow on this busy route, temporary traffic lights remain in place around our site. We expect to reach Nutcombe Lane by the end of February.
Meanwhile, our second team of engineers have completed all engineering work possible in nearby Hazel Grove and High Pitfold. We're working to reinstate around our site and reopen the road by Friday 14 January.
We do need to return to complete further work in this location and this will all be planned in consultation with the local authority. We'll provide details of this here once confirmed.
We’re working closely with the UK Government and public health bodies to make sure we work safely and in line with expert advice during the coronavirus outbreak. We have extra safety precautions in place to protect our colleagues and our customers from catching or spreading the virus as we carry out these safety-critical improvement works in your community.
We understand 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, Hindhead residents and businesses will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come.
