The north of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £150,000 to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network in Cottingham Road, Hull.
The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in the area and will involve replacing 700m 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 works, which began on Monday 10 October and will last approximately 10 weeks with an estimated completion date of 16 December, have been planned in conjunction with Hull City Council to ensure as little disruption to customers as possible.
The entire project will take place on the pedestrian walkways of Cottingham Road, however alternative pedestrian access will be provided.
Engineers will be working from Monday to Friday between 8am and 4pm.
Robert Hope, Construction Services Area Manager at Northern Gas Networks said: “We have been working closely with Hull City Council to carefully plan these works in order to minimise any disruption to customers.
“We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these works, and thank our customers for their patience and support in getting them completed as quickly as possible.”
