The North of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £160,000 to upgrade the ageing metal gas mains on Skellow Road, Carcroft.
This major project is part of NGNs’ ongoing replacement of infrastructure in the region and will involve replacing over 1.2km of existing metal gas mains with more durable plastic pipes to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.
The 13 week project will begin on Monday 24 August and has been carefully planned in conjunction with Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council.
In order to carry out these works safely and efficiently it will be necessary to install temporary two and three-way traffic lights on Skellow Road from Monday 24 August for three weeks at the entrance of Asda Superstore.
As the work continues along Skellow Road, three way-lights will be placed at the junction of Queens Road and Skellow Road for around three weeks followed by four way lights at the junction of Owston Road and Skellow road for a further three weeks.
The work will be completed Owston Road where two way traffic signals will be in place for the final week.
NGN’s Customer Care Officers have been door knocking local homes and businesses to make customers aware of the work.
Warren Iveson, Construction Services Area Manager Northern Gas Networks said: “We have been working closely with Doncaster council to carefully plan these works and will be doing all we can to minimise any disruption caused.
Warren continued: “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.”
