Northern Gas Networks is investing more than £170,000 to upgrade over 2km of ageing metallic gas mains in the Lower Wortley Road area of Leeds.
The project is part of Northern Gas Networks’ ongoing development of infrastructure across the north of England and will involve replacing existing metallic gas mains with more durable plastic pipes to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to our customers in the area for years to come.
The twelve week project, will commence on Monday 1 June, in Whitehall Road and will progress towards Fawcett Avenue.
A part of this project work will also be carried out in the follow roads:
- Whitehall Road
- Walkers Lane
- Walkers Green
- Ryedale Avenue
- Ryedale Holt
- Greenville Gardens
- Lower Wortley Road
- Fawcett Avenue
In order to carry out our work safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to close Royds Lane from Monday 15 June for a period of two weeks.
Businesses in the area will remain open as usual and pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.
Russell Oxley, Construction Services Area Manager, Northern Gas Networks said: “We have planned our work closely with Leeds City Council to keep traffic disruption to a minimum.
“We would like to take this opportunity to apologise in advance for any inconvenience this essential work may cause, and thank members of the public for their patience and support.”
