The North of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing more than £50,000 to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network in Rawdon, Leeds.
The project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure and will involve replacing more than 60m 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.
Starting on Thursday 26 July, the project is scheduled to take approximately four-weeks. In order to carry out the works safely and efficiently, the following traffic management will be in place:
- From Thursday 26 July until Friday 3 August, temporary traffic lights will be in place at the junction of Micklefield Lane, Harrogate Road and Leeds Road
- From Monday 30 July until Friday 17 August, a road closure will be in place on Quakers Lane from the junction of Harrogate Road to the junction of Cherry Lea Court
Russell Horner, Business Operations Lead for Northern Gas Networks, said: “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.”
