Moving our gas pipe to pave the way for Chester redevelopment

in your area

A section of footpath in Chester city centre will be closed for 10 days as engineers move a gas pipe which sits underneath it.
Cheshire’s gas network Cadent has agreed to move its mains pipe in St Martin’s Way to facilitate planned development in the local area.
During the 10 days of works, starting Monday 5 February, there will be no access to the footpath between the road crossings at the end of Hunter Street.
One lane of St Martin’s Way will be closed also, during off-peak hours only (9.30am to 3.30pm).
Residents or business owners who have questions about this work can contact the project’s customer team on 0161 703 1000.


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.
