Northern Gas Networks will be investing £100,000 to replace ageing metal gas mains in Normanby Road, Middlesbrough with new durable plastic pipes to ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to residents in the area for years to come.
The essential work will be carried out in two phases.
The first phase will commence on Thursday 27 February and is expected to take approximately four weeks to complete.
In order to carry out the first phase of this work safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to close the inside lane of Trunk Road and the inside lane of Normanby Road.
The second phase of the project will get underway week commencing Monday 24 March and is expected to take approximately three weeks to complete. In order to carry out this work, a single lane closure will be in place on Normanby Road outside the leisure centre.
Gordon Thompson, Customer Operations Area Manager, Northern Gas Networks said; “We have planned our work closely with Middlesbrough Council, to minimise disruption to both residents and motorists.
“We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this essential work may cause and thank everyone in advance for their patience and understanding.”
