Work has started to renew gas mains in the town. The work is being carried out by United Utilities who are working on behalf of Northern Gas Networks.
Around 250m of old metal mains in Anlaby Road, Hull will be replaced with modern plastic pipe to ensure the safety and reliability of gas supplies in the town for many decades to come. The work will take place between the bus depot and Bean Street and will take ten weeks to complete. Due to the nature of the work, there may be some disruption to motorists.
Northern Gas Networks’ Director Chris Gorman said everything possible would be done to keep inconvenience to a minimum during this essential project. “Although this scheme is essential for the safety and reliability of local gas supplies we are aware that it will be disruptive for local people. That is why we’re using the latest technology to help us lessen the need for much time-consuming excavation work. We know no-one likes being faced with road works but this is a vital project for gas users in Hull. We will do our very best to minimise disruption and keep people updated about the progress of the work.”
Northern Gas Networks spends more than £60m a year renewing gas mains to make sure its system remains one of the safest and most reliable in the world.
