The North of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £195,000 to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network in Wilbert Lane and Mill Lane, Beverley.
The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in the area and will involve replacing around 950m 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 project, which began at the end of September and is progressing well, has been planned in conjunction with East Riding of Yorkshire Highways Authority to ensure all works are completed with as little disruption as possible.
The scheme is now in its final phase having reached Cherry Tree Crossing and Cherry Tree Lane, however works have reached a temporary pause due to the complexity of the engineering works involved close to the railway line.
Engineers will return to complete the project in early 2017, in the meantime the site has been cleared with all holes filled and materials removed from the area.
Robert Hope, Construction Services Area Manager at Northern Gas Networks said: “We have been working closely with East Riding of Yorkshire Highways to carefully plan this project in order to minimise disruption to customers.
“We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank our customers for their patience and support in the meantime, before we return to complete the work next year.”
