Engineers are carrying out essential maintenance work to a gas pipeline in Hyde, Central Bedfordshire.
Chiltern Green Road is currently closed near the junction with Lower Harpenden Road, to enable the work to be carried out safely. A signed diversion is in place for road users.
Engineers are digging two open excavations to enable them to inspect and remediate a section of gas pipeline beneath the road. Work is scheduled to continue until Monday 17 February 2020.
The work has been carefully planned to ensure its delivered with as little disruption as possible. A specialist vacuum excavator – which sucks out ground material – is being used to speed up the excavation process and engineers are also working extended hours to help ensure work is completed as soon as possible.
Local shops and businesses will remain open throughout the project.
Cadent Project Engineer, Kieran Shipp, said: “The work we’re currently doing will help ensure this section of pipe continues to deliver safe and reliable gas supplies to the area.
“It will also reduce the risk of gas leaks from the pipe and associated disruption.”
He added: “We’re doing all we can to deliver this essential work with as little disruption as possible including using specialist kit and working additional hours.”
