From Monday (16 July), the North of England’s gas distributor Northern Gas Networks (NGN), will be upgrading the gas distribution network on Bradley Road, Huddersfield.
The project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure and will involve replacing 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 seven-week project has been carefully planned in conjunction with Kirklees Council to minimise the impact caused. To carry out the works safely and effectively the following traffic management will be in place:
From Monday 13 August, until Sunday 2 September, the Bradley Road eastbound slip road from the Leeds Road will be closed, along with a short lane closure at the junction, to allow these works to take place. A diversion route to access the Bradley Road will be via Leeds Road, Cooper Bridge Road, Cooper Bridge roundabout and returning on the Leeds Road.
Chris Nevison, Business Operations Lead for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We have been working closely with Kirklees Council to carefully plan these works and will be doing all we can to minimise disruption to customers.
“We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience customers may encounter and thank everyone for their support as we work to complete this project as safely and quickly as possible.”
For further information about the project please contact NGN’s Customer Care Team on 0800 040 7766 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
