Essential gas pipe replacement to start near Broseley

in your area

Shropshire gas network Cadent will be starting essential work next Monday (27 April) to maintain gas supplies to local homes and businesses.

Engineers will be replacing an ageing gas main in the B4376, between Barrow and Broseley. The work is due to take four weeks.

This work will not require engineers to enter anyone’s homes.

The safety and well-being of customers and colleagues is Cadent’s number one priority. Coronavirus precautions will be maintained throughout this work and engineers will maintain social distancing.

The B4376 will be closed between Lodge Lane and the B4373 Bridgnorth Road, while the work is under way. A diversion will be in place via Broseley and Barrow.

Motorists will be diverted via B4376, B4373 Bridgnorth Road, High Street, Barratt’s Hill, B4375 Benthall Lane and B4376 into Barrow.


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.
