Water Ingress in Moldgreen and Tandem, Huddersfield – 29th September 2014

Engineers from Northern Gas Networks are currently on site carrying out emergency repair work to a gas main in the Moldgreen and Tandem areas of Huddersfield, after water from a burst water main made its way into a gas pipe.

The gas supply to around 250 residential properties in Greenlea Court has been affected, along with specific sections of Cross Green Road and Dalton Green Lane.

Neil Armstrong, Customer Operations Area Manager, Northern Gas Networks, said: “The safety of our customers is our number one priority. Our engineers are working hard to isolate the gas supplies to the affected properties – this involves temporarily disconnecting them from the gas main – an essential first step before we can carry out the necessary repair work.

“We would like to apologise to customers for the inconvenience caused and thank everyone for their patience and understanding.

“If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact an engineer on site or call the Customer Care team on 0845 634 0508.”

A customer drop-in centre has been set up at The Stag Inn, 456, Wakefield Road, Huddersfield, where heaters and hot plates can be obtained.

Anyone who smells gas should call the National Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999.
