Stannington to Malin Bridge, Hillsborough: Cadent engineers working to get customers back gas supplies

in your area

Cadent engineers started restoring gas supplies in Stannington and Malin Bridge this morning. There was a small delay for some engineers, due to the snow and not being able to get up the steep hills in the area. All engineers are now on-site visiting properties. We will continue until 10pm this evening.
Water is being pumped out of gas mains, services, gas meters and appliances still but homes and businesses are getting back on gas.
As long as people are in, we are hoping to get the remaining estimated 200 properties, in Stannington back on gas today. We are putting properties back on gas in Malin Bridge too but as we are still pumping water out of the gas pipes, the remaining properties will be restored tomorrow.
We know some properties are having problems with their gas appliances and we have Gas Safe Registered engineers on site fixing them. This may take some time, so please bear with these engineers.
We also know that some properties in the area are experiencing intermittent problems with their gas, once they have been switched on. If this is the case for you, please call us on 0800 917 9598.  
If we haven't been able to get your gas supply back on today, because you were out, don't worry, we will be returning tomorrow and the next day if necessary. We won't be leaving the Stannington to Malin Bridge area until everyone is back on gas.

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.
