Emergency Response Engineers from Northern Gas Networks are carrying out essential repair work to a medium pressure gas main on Bondgate, Alnwick.
In order to carry out this work safely and efficiently it has been necessary to temporarily close Bondgate Within to through traffic.
A signed diversion has been put in place for motorists, and access to shops and businesses on Bondgate will be maintained at all times. Shops and businesses are signposted as open as usual.
Denny Ingram, Network Officer, Northern Gas Networks, said: “We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused while we carry out this essential work and reassure members of the public that we will be working throughout the Bank Holiday weekend to complete this work as quickly as possible.”
“If you smell gas you should call the National Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999 immediately, your call will be answered at any time of day or night and an engineer will be sent out to assess the situation promptly.”
