Cadent engineers will be carrying out work to repair a suspected gas escape this evening (Wednesday 18 September).
Engineers are scheduled to work through the night from 8pm this evening (Wednesday 18 September) to fix the leak which is believed to be coming from a gas main located in The Circle, Brent.
To enable the work to be carried out safely engineers will need to close a 200m stretch of the inside westbound lane of the A406 running up to the first junction with The Circle, from 8pm this evening.
Engineers will do all they can to locate the leak and complete repairs as soon as possible, once this has been done any excavations that have been dug will need to be filled in and reinstated by Cadent subcontractors.
Access in and out of The Circle will be maintained via the second turning into The Circle.
The work needs to be done to help ensure local people keep on enjoying safe and reliable gas supplies for cooking and heating.
Cadent is doing all it can to minimise disruption while carrying out the necessary work including working during off-peak hours when roads are quieter.
