    • Two new gas connections are being installed to commercial properties on The Causeway;
    • Works to begin on Saturday 7th January and will be completed over the weekends of the 7/8th and 14/15th.

    Work is set to take place in Matlock, Derbyshire, to install two new gas connections to commercial properties on The Causeway. Cadent will be carrying out the works over two weekends in January in a bid to minimise disruption in the town.

    Starting on Saturday 7th January, the work will see one of Causeway Lane (A615) closed off for two weekends (7th-8th, and 14th-15th January). 2-way temporary lights will be installed to manage the flow of traffic directly outside Matlock Town Football Club’s Causeway Lane stadium.

    Spectators to Matlock Town’s home game versus Morpeth Town FC on Saturday 7th January are being encouraged to allow extra time to their journey in light of the traffic disruption, whilst visitors to, and residents of Matlock should also consider the impact that the disruption will have on their journeys when making plans.

    Chris Mackey, Domestic Connections Surveyor for Cadent, said: “We acknowledge and apologise for the inconvenience that will be caused to road users as a result of us carrying out this vital work but we have taken steps to ensure that the works are being carried out in a way which minimises disruption. My thanks go to Derbyshire County Council and Matlock Town Football Club for their understanding and co-operation with this.”

    Jay Beaumont, Chairman of Matlock Town Football Club, said: “Matlock is currently experiencing a number of traffic disruptions at the moment and so with the work being carried out right outside our Causeway Lane home, I really would encourage supporters to set off early for our game versus Morpeth to ensure that they don’t miss kick off. As we look to continue our push to the play-offs, it is important we have as many people in attendance as possible.”

    Cadent

    Cadent is the UK’s largest gas distribution network with a 200-year legacy. We are in a unique position to build on strong foundations whilst encouraging the curiosity to think differently and the courage to embrace change. Day to day we continue to operate, maintain and innovate the UK’s largest gas network, transporting gas safely and protecting people in an emergency. Our skilled engineers and specialists remain committed to the communities we serve, working day and night to ensure gas reaches 11 million homes from Cumbria to North London and the Welsh Borders to East Anglia, to keep your energy flowing.

    Future of Gas:

    Here at Cadent we support the Government’s plans to reach Net Zero by 2050. That means we’re backing the introduction of hydrogen as a low carbon alternative to natural gas for the future. We know people love the controllability of gas and, with our network already in place, it makes sense to switch to the lower carbon alternative offered by hydrogen, which we believe can keep homes and businesses warm for generations to come.
