    New gas mains to be installed in Harbury Lane, Warwick

    Project will ensure there’s enough gas for a new housing development 

    Temporary traffic lights in Harbury Lane to keep staff and road-users safe


Work to install new gas mains in Warwick for a major new housing development will start on Monday (12 August).

Local gas network Cadent will be installing a section of new gas pipes in Harbury Lane. The work will ensure there is enough gas to meet the needs of a new housing development.

The project is due to take until 2 September. To carry out the work safely, there will be temporary traffic lights in Harbury Lane, near to the junction with Tachbrook Road.

Craig Horrocks, who heads up Cadent’s gas mains renewal programme in the West Midlands, said: “It is very important that we carry out this work to ensure that residents on the new housing development receive the gas they need to warm their homes and cook their food.

“The work is being carried out over the summer holidays, when traffic is lighter, which will minimise disruption. Every effort will be taken to complete the work as soon as possible.”

If anyone has any enquiries about this work they should contact Cadent’s customer services team on 0161 703 1110.

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.
