Affected by our work

We always aim to keep businesses, customers and motorists updated on any major planned work in their area. We send letters to people whose homes are affected, and carry out personal visits. In some cases, we organise public exhibitions to explain what the plans are and why the work is necessary to the wider community. This also provides an opportunity for people to ask questions and discuss some of the detail. We also provide information to AA Roadwatch and the local media.
If we can make use of technology to keep digging to a minimum then we will, but this isn't always possible.

Although it may look like there is no-one working on the site, it doesn't mean the work has actually finished. Sometimes, for safety reasons, we have to allow materials to 'settle' before starting the next stage. Even after the pipe improvement or repair work is finished, we can't always fill the holes in one day. We may be able to partially fill the holes, but this has to be given time to settle before the top layer (of concrete, asphalt etc) can be laid and set. Only when this full process is complete and everything is dry and safe to be driven or walked on, is it safe for us to allow traffic and pedestrians to use the section of the road once more.

We have to go into all the homes and test all the gas appliances to check they’re safe when turning the gas back on.

If your gas is off because of planned pipe upgrade work, it may be that we're still working to get gas back on to your street. Our fitters work well into the evening and it could be as late as 8pm when you get a visit. If you haven’t heard anything by 7:30pm, call the number on the letters or cards you’ve had about the work.

If your gas is off because of a gas emergency, call 0800 111 999.

We have a commitment to fill holes and return the paths and driveways on your property back to normal within five working days of your gas going back on. If you have a path or driveway made of specialist or hard-to-source materials, such as printed concrete, this may take slightly longer.

We will be in touch to discuss this with you. However, if it is longer than five working days, please call the number on the letters you have received or email wecare@cadentgas.com.

If you haven’t heard anything by 7:30pm, call the number on the letters or cards you’ve had about the work.

We have different teams, with different skills, doing different parts of the work. The team doing the pipework may have left because their part of the job is done, but the fitters who reconnect the gas are likely to still be in homes, safely turning the gas back on and checking gas appliances. They work up to as late as 8pm. If you still haven’t had a visit by 7:30pm, call the number on the card or letters that you’ve already received about the mains replacement to arrange an appointment.

If you have a question about our work, call our enquiry line on 0345 835 1111 or email wecare@cadentgas.com
