Upgrading the gas network

Cadent is investing over £1million into the gas network in Ipswich. The project commenced in June 2023 and will see us replace some 1.7km of existing metallic pipes, with new more durable plastic pipe. The new pipes will help reduce the amount of unplanned work to repair ageing gas pipes in the future and ensure a safe and reliable gas supply for the community, for many years to come. 

What are we doing?

We are maintaining and upgrading the gas network along Duke Street and Fore Street from Orwell Place to Wykes Bishop Street (just north of the roundabout with Holywells/Myrtle Road) and along Patteson Road. Other interconnecting local roads will be impacted and/or used as traffic diversions during works.
