The north of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing more than £15k to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network on Queen Street, Withernsea.

The project, starting on Monday (4 December) is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in Withernsea and will involve replacing more than 100m 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 is expected to take approximately two-weeks to complete and has been planned in conjunction with East Riding of Yorkshire Council to ensure all works are completed with as little disruption as possible.

The road will be closed between Seaside Road and Hull Road, and as a result the diversion route will be via Seaside Road, Bannister Street and Young Street (or by this route reversed).

Russ Kaye, Business Operational Leader at Northern Gas Networks, said: “We have been working closely with East Riding of Yorkshire Highways 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.”

For further information about the project please contact NGN’s Customer Care Team on 0800 040 7766 or email: customercare@northerngas.co.uk.

Anyone that smells gas or suspects carbon monoxide should call the National Gas Emergency Service immediately on 0800 111 999. This line is in operation 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
