Northern Gas Networks will be carrying out essential works to replace 650m of ageing metal gas mains in Harrogate with new durable plastic pipes to ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas for years to come.
The essential work will commence on Tuesday 19 November and will take an estimated two months to complete.
In order to carry out this work safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to place temporary traffic lights on Skipton Road between Regent Avenue and Devonshire Place for a three-week period.
Garry Farnhill, Customer Operations Area Manager, Northern Gas Networks said; “We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding, and apologise in advance for any inconvenience this essential work may cause.”
“To minimise traffic congestion on Skipton Road we will be manning the traffic lights between 7am and 7pm to help ease the flow of traffic. This essential work forms part of an ongoing mains replacement programme which will see Northern Gas Networks replace more than 3,000km of gas pipe across the north of England by 2020.”
