The north of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN) is investing £111,000 to upgrade the ageing metal gas distribution network at Ings Lane in the village of Bradley, near Keighley.
The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in the area and will involve replacing 1.4km of existing metal gas mains with more durable plastic pipes to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply to customers for years to come.
The project, which will begin on Monday 23 May and last approximately eight weeks, has been planned in conjunction with North Yorkshire County Council to ensure all works are completed with as little disruption as possible.
In order to achieve this, traffic management measures will be in place. Two-way temporary traffic lights will be placed on Ings Lane from Monday 23 May to Monday 6 June, from the junction of Matthew Lane to the junction of Ings Drive.
As a result, it is expected that there may be some delays to bus services. All bus companies will be contacted by NGN ahead of the works and advised of any bus stop suspensions.
Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the scheme.
NGN’s engineers will be working from Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 5.30pm to complete the project as quickly as possible.
Ian Cunningham, Construction Services Area Manager Northern Gas Networks said: “We have been working closely with North Yorkshire County Council to carefully plan these works and minimise disruption to customers.
“We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused, and would like to thank our customers for their patience and support in getting these works completed as quickly as possible.”
