This summer Cadent will be upgrading the local gas network in Radlett to help ensure the local community keep on enjoying safe and reliable gas supplies into the 22nd
The project will take place in Common Lane, Radlett and is scheduled to begin on Monday 3rd August and be completed by Friday 4 September 2020.
Engineers will be laying 350m of new gas mains and will need to dig large open excavations to install them. To carry out the work safely a road closure will also need to be in place for the duration of the project. The new gas mains will complement the existing gas mains in the area and help ensure future gas demand continues to be met in the area.
Gas supplies to the area will be maintained throughout the work and engineers will not require access to properties.
To ensure the work is completed as soon as possible engineers will be working extended hours where possible.
Dilbir Chana, Cadent Authorising Engineer, said: “We need to install these new gas pipes to help ensure the local area keeps on enjoying safe and reliable gas supplies for cooking and heating.
“We’ve carefully designed the project to ensure its delivered as promptly as possible and we’re doing all we can to minimise inconvenience.”
The UK Government has classed work undertaken by energy networks like Cadent as essential during the Coronavirus outbreak, as they are ensuring a safe and reliable gas supply. Engineers work to the latest government guidance and are taking extra safety precautions as required
Mr Chana added: “Our teams have been fully briefed on the procedures outlined by the Government around social distancing.
“The safety of the public and our workforce remains of paramount importance to us and we also ask those passing by our work sites observe Government social distancing guidelines as well.”
