The North of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing more than £115k to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network in and around Huddersfield.
The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure and will involve replacing around 250m of existing metal gas pipes with more durable plastic ones. This will ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.
The project will take place on Park Road in Crosland Moor from Monday 28 May and is scheduled to last seven weeks. From Friday 25 May until Sunday 1 July there will be rolling two-way lights on Park Road to support side road closures off Park Road.
The closures will take place in three phases starting at the junction of De Trafford Street, followed by the junction of Everard Street and Lightcliffe Street, and finally the junction of College Street. All closures will have full signed diversions in place.
From Monday 2 July to Sunday 15 July four-way lights will be in place at the junction of Blackmoor Foot Road.
Chris Nevison, Business Operations Lead for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We have been working closely with Kirklees 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.”
