The north of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing more than £50k to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network in and around North Lane, Headingley.
The project is part of NGN’s ongoing investment in the gas infrastructure in the area and involves replacing around 350m of existing metal gas mains with more durable plastic pipes. This will ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.
The project, which is due to begin on Tuesday 2 January and is expected to last approximately five weeks, has been planned in conjunction with Leeds City Council to ensure all works are completed with as little disruption as possible.
No traffic management is required during these works. However, there will be a requirement to suspend parking bays along North Lane whilst these works take place. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.
Russell Horner, Business Operational Leader for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We have been working closely with Leeds City Council to carefully plan these works 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.”
