Cadent engineers have been working through the pandemic to deliver a major £5m project that will help keep Londoners connected to safe and reliable gas supplies.
The scheme has involved the construction of a new PRS (Pressure Reduction Station) in Tower Hamlets which will help keep the gas flowing to thousands of homes across East London, helping to keep people safe and warm.
The scheme also involves replacing ageing gas pipes with tough new pipes which should last into the 22nd century.
Once operational the facility’s job will be to adjust gas pressure enabling it to be fed into the local gas distribution network to supply thousands of homes, businesses and community facilities.
All the above work activities have been on-going while lockdown has been in place (social distancing of course)
Cadent Authorising Engineer Carl Williams said: “We’ve been carrying out the work during the lockdown while observing government social distancing guidelines.
“The whole project is planned to be completed within eight months and we’re on track to do that.”
He added: “This project is part of Cadent’s ongoing major investment in the capital which will help ensure Londoner’s keep on enjoying world class infrastructure into the 22nd century.”
