Mains replacement works

Bidston, Wirral


What are we doing?

We are upgrading the local gas network in the North West, replacing ageing metallic pipes to new plastic ones. These will last for a long, long time, and will see us retire older pipes that have come to the natural end of their operating life. This work is part of a big investment programme, across the UK, to build infrastructure that will keep everyone warm in their homes, but with less impact on the environment. Details of the programme in North West England can be found at
The current pipes in the Bidston Green area were installed approximately 50 years ago and need to be replaced so that they can continue to be used safely. More than 84% of Wirral’s homes rely on gas central heating to provide warmth and hot water, and these works are critical to ensure that this continues to happen safely.
