- Cadent announces next phase of essential gas mains replacement work in Fulham Road, Chelsea
- Work part of five year scheme to renew ageing gas mains
- People can find out more at a public exhibition to be held on Wednesday 28 February
People are being invited to find out more about essential work to replace ageing gas mains in Chelsea.
In 2017 engineers replaced old gas mains in Fulham Road between Gunter Grove and Elm Park Gardens.
Now Cadent is planning the next phase of gas mains replacement work on the road, which will be between Elm Park Gardens and Brompton Road. Details, dates and traffic management for the project are still being finalised.
People are invited to attend a public exhibition where they can find out more about our plans and to meet the project team. This is being held at Chelsea Methodist Church, 155a King’s Road, London SW3 5TX on Wednesday 28 February 2018 between 4pm and 8pm.
Cadent Engineering Manager Stuart Donaldson said: “We’re doing all we can to ensure the project has as little impact on people who work, live or travel through the area as possible.
“We’re planning the work in close discussion with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, TfL traffic management and buses, the emergency services and Royal Brompton Hospital. Throughout the work all shops and businesses will be open as usual and it will not affect your gas supply.”
He added: “The project will help ensure local people remain connected to safe and reliable gas supplies for cooking and heating and also reduce the number of disruptive unplanned repair jobs required on ageing gas mains.”
He added: “I’d encourage anyone with questions about the work to come and meet us at the public exhibition or alternatively they can contact our Community Relations Team on 0800 389 8261 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

This work is part of Cadent’s investment to replace and upgrade the gas mains in London with safer and more durable modern pipes. This work will help ensure London enjoys a 21st
century infrastructure network and remains one of the world’s leading cities.
