Essential gas pipe upgrade to start in Lincoln

in your area

Lincolnshire gas network Cadent will be starting essential work next Tuesday (14 April) in Lincoln’s Canwick Road to maintain gas supplies to local homes and businesses.
Engineers will be installing a new gas pipe in Canwick Road between the junction with A15 South Park Avenue and the junction with Washborough Road. The work is due to take three weeks.
The new, larger gas pipe will ensure there is enough gas to meet local demand, both now and in the future.
To keep staff and road-users safe, during the work there will be a lane closure on the southbound side of Canwick Road, between South Park Avenue and Washborough Road. Motorists are advised to leave extra time for their journeys.
The safety and well-being of customers and colleagues is Cadent’s number one priority. Coronavirus precautions will be maintained throughout this work.
Engineers will ensure social distancing between themselves and pedestrians. This work will not require them to enter anyone’s homes.


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.
