Engineers will be helping ensure local people keep on enjoying warmth in future winters with an essential gas mains replacement project planned for early 2018.
 
Plans have been drawn up to replacing ageing gas mains in Shenley Lane, London Colney.
 
The project is due to start on Monday 8 January and is currently scheduled for completion on Sunday 18 March 2018.
 
The work will take place in four phases outlined as follows:
 
Phase One
Work will take place opposite along a 187m stretch of Shenley Lane opposite Napsbury Park 
The side road to Shenley Lane will be closed, but there will still be access from the Telford Road.
Traffic management will be provided by two-way traffic lights.

Phase Two
This will involve work on a 186m stretch of the road in the vicinity of the junction with Telford Road. Traffic management will be provided by three-way traffic lights.

Phase Three
Work will be taking place along a 186m stretch of the road in the vicinity of the junction with Walsingham Way. Traffic management will be provided by three-way traffic lights.
 
Phase Four
Work will be taking place along a 184m stretch of the road near the junction of St Annes Road.
Traffic management will be provided by three-way traffic lights
 
Cadent Authorising Engineer Dilbir Chana said: “The gas mains we’re replacing have served the area for many years but it’s now essential we replace them to ensure safe and reliable gas supplies for cooking and heating are maintained in the area.

“The new gas pipes we’re installing will last for decades and help ensure local people can keep warm for many winters to come.”

He added: “We’ve carefully planned this work in close discussion with the local authority to ensure we deliver it with as little disruption to the local community and road users as possible. Local gas supplies will be maintained throughout the project and access will not be required to properties."
