Northern Gas Networks is investing £100k to upgrade ageing metallic gas mains in Moss Bay Road, Workington.
The project is part of Northern Gas Network’s ongoing development of infrastructure across the north of England and will involve replacing approximately 650 metres of existing metallic gas main 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 essential work, which is expected to take a total of four weeks to complete, will commence on Monday 1September in Moss Bay Road for three weeks before moving into Cain Street for one week.
In order to carry out the work safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to place two way temporary traffic lights on Moss Bay Road for four weeks while work is taking place. Access will be maintained for motorists and pedestrians at all times.
Barry Watson, Customer Operations Area Manager, Northern Gas Networks said: “We have been working closely with Cumbria Highways department to carefully plan these works and will be doing all we can to complete this work as quickly as possible, including working six day weeks.
“Our Customer Liaison team is door-knocking residents in the area to help ensure they are aware of the work. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact our Customer Care team on 0845 634 0508, option 7.
“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.
