Northern Gas Networks is investing £100,000 to replace ageing metal gas mains in Normanby Road, Middlesbrough with new durable plastic pipes to ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to residents in the area for years to come.
The first phase of the work was completed in March and the second phase of the project will get underway next week (Monday 6 October) and is expected to take approximately eight weeks to complete.
In order to carry out this work, single lane closures will be in place on Normanby Road and Trunk Road with traffic management in place to ensure the safe flow of traffic.
Customer Care Officers from Northern Gas Networks have been door knocking businesses and residents to ensure that they are aware of the work, and answer any questions.
Gordon Thompson, Customer Operations Area Manager, Northern Gas Networks said; “We have planned our work closely with Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland Council, to minimise disruption to both residents and motorists.
“We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this essential work may cause and thank everyone in advance for their patience and understanding.”
