The north of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £186,000 to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network in Holmfield Road, Sutton-in-Craven.
The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in the area and will involve replacing 1.8km of existing metal gas mains with more durable plastic pipes to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.
The project, which starts the week beginning 30 May and will last approximately 15 weeks with an estimated completion date of 12 September, has been carefully planned in conjunction with North Yorkshire Council to ensure all works are completed with as little disruption as possible.
In order to complete the works as safely and efficiently as possible, traffic management measures will be in place throughout the project. Three-way temporary traffic lights will be introduced on Manse Way at the junction of Holme Lane for approximately three weeks from Tuesday 31 May.
There will be parking restrictions during the scheme however access to driveways will be maintained at all times and pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.
Engineers will be working Monday to Friday between 8am and 4pm.
Ian Cunningham, Construction Services Area Manager Northern Gas Networks said: “We have been working closely with North Yorkshire Council to carefully plan these works during the school holidays in order to minimise any disruption caused.
“We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these works, and thank our customers for their patience and support in getting them completed as quickly as possible.”
