The North of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £60k to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network on Dick Lane, Bradford.
The project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in Bradford and will involve the replacing 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 began today (5 September) is due to take approximately six-weeks and has been planned in conjunction with Bradford City Council to ensure all works are completed with as little disruption as possible.
In order to carry out the work safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to introduce two-way temporary traffic signals on Dick Lane from today for the full duration of the project. The lights will be manually operated during peak times and will be monitored and assessed regularly. Pedestrian access will also be maintained at all times.
Josh Hampshire, Construction Services Area Manager for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We have been working closely with Bradford City Council to carefully plan these works in order to minimise any disruption to customers.
“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.”
