We look after more than 74,000 kilometres of pipes across our network. Making sure these pipes deliver your gas safely and reliably means that we need to upgrade or repair them at times. We know that roadworks can be frustrating, but our essential work keeps you, your family and local community safe.

Emergency gas pipe repairs
When upgrading pipes or installing a new connection, we can plan the roadworks in advance. But when safety is at stake we must respond quickly and efficiently, and this may mean having to carry out streetworks at very short notice or at night. Sometimes we have to start work before the information filters through to our map. When that happens, we’ll add that information here.
Wednesday 29 November - B2203 Maynard's Green Road, Horam
We're working in the B2203 Maynard's Green Road in Horam to repair a section of our damaged gas main.
For everyone's safety, we've temporarily closed the road. A signed diversion is in place for road users.
It's too soon to say how soon we'll complete our repairs but we'll provide updates here.
Wednesday 29 November - Tower Hill, Whitstable
We’re carrying out urgent repairs to our gas network in Tower Hill, Whitstable following a leak on a metal gas main. We’re working to transfer gas services from the metal main to newer plastic pipes.
For everyone’s safety around our work area, we’ve temporarily closed Beach Walk and Tower Hill and installed temporary traffic lights in Northwood Road, Tankerton Road and Tower Parade. Road users can still access Tower Hill, which is one way.
All being well, we hope to complete our work by Wednesday 6 December. We’re sorry for any disruption our work may cause to the local community.

Thursday 23 November – A2 London Road, Bapchild, Sittingbourne
Our urgent repair work along A2 London Road is ongoing. Temporary traffic lights remain in place around our site near Bapchild Cricket Club, for everyone's safety.
The remaining leaks requiring repair are located on our medium pressure main. To do this safely, we need to reduce the pressure through excavation access on the A2 outside Perry's Sittingbourne Vauxhall, which will require additional temporary lights to be in operation.
Once these final repairs are done, and our reinstatement work is complete, we'll be able to safely clear our site and reopen the A2 fully. All being well, this should happen by Thursday 30 November.
Tuesday 21 November - A96, Nairn
We're continuing emergency repairs to our gas network in the A96, at its junction with Tradespark Road, in Nairn.
For everyone's safety around our work area, temporary four-way traffic lights remain in place at this junction.
Our engineering team has made a repair to our network however, we’re still picking up residual gas readings. We’re now in the process of ventilating the gas using the latest innovation, while investigating any possible additional sources of leaks. This is a lengthy process and is likely to continue throughout the remainder of this week.
Once we’re confident that the gas has dissipated and have carried out reinstatement works, we can remove the traffic lights returning the road to normal.
In the meantime, we’ll continue to manually control our traffic lights to help minimise delays as much as possible. We’ll post updates here.
