Ugg Mere

We are improving a gas pipeline in your area.

We are undertaking a vital maintenance project for the protection of the gas network in your area.

This project will ensure residents, schools, hospitals, and businesses can continue to enjoy safe and reliable gas supplies for decades to come.

The works will start on Monday 7th March 2022 and will last approximately 26 weeks.

There will be no impact to your gas supply.

We have taken several measures to limit the impact this project will have on the local area, these include:

  • Following community feedback, we have revised the traffic management in line with the programme of the works to limit disruption.
  • We have worked closely with the local highway authority and all diversions will be signposted and residents notified of them in advance
  • There will be additional signage on the diversion route and traffic cones set out to discourage illegal parking along the route
  • During the installation of the works, a higher strength concrete mixture will be utilised in attempt to reduce setting times
  • The site will receive additional visits from Highways Assurance to ensure compliance and correct signage along the diversion route.
