    • Essential work will help keep residents connected to safe and reliable gas supplies for cooking and heating
    • Work starts on 17 June to replace around 1km of pipe along Harrow View for  42 weeks
    • A width restriction will be in place to restrict vehicles travelling northbound on Harrow View

    Cadent is upgrading the gas network along Harrow View, Harrow, replacing the old metal gas pipes with more durable plastic pipe from 17 June for 42 weeks.

    Local gas distribution company Cadent, will be upgrading a kilometre section of the old metal pipes on Harrow View from the junction with Headstone Gardens southwards to Hindes Road.

    To help minimise disruption to road users, we will complete our work in 100 metres sections with rolling road closures in place starting from Headstone Gardens moving south to Hindes Road.

    Traffic management

    Northbound traffic:
    A width restriction will be in place at the junction of Headstone Road and Greenhill Way to prohibit the movement of all HGV, buses and large vehicles travelling north along Harrow View. This will ensure residential roads are not used by these vehicles.

    Buses that travel north along Headstone Road and Harrow View will be diverted along Pinner Road to North Harrow and then back towards Harrow View along Headstone Gardens.

    Northbound rolling road closure:
    Access for smaller vehicles travelling north along Harrow View will still be maintained up to the point of the Cadent works. Vehicles will then be diverted to use the side streets to continue their journey around the closure.

    The closure will move along Harrow View as the works progress.

    Southbound traffic:
    Southbound access towards the town centre should be maintained at all times for cars and small vehicles.

    Service pipe replacement
    Cadent will also be upgrading the smaller ‘service’ pipes, which supply gas to properties from the bigger main gas pipe in the street. The Cadent team will be in touch to explain further details, if we are going to replace your service pipe.

    Traffic management will be reviewed as the works progress and might be subject to change to ensure traffic is flowing.

    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.
