A damaged gas main on the A64 at Leeds has now been repaired by our engineers and the road is now completely open.
A leak had meant engineers had to close one side of the A64 close to Junction 44 of the A1(M) on Tuesday 28 August.
However, this work has now been completed and engineers have reopened the road this evening (Friday 31 August).
James Knox, NGN Site Manager, said: “We’re sorry for the inconvenience that this road closure has caused for motorists, but it was essential for the safe repair of the pipes underground.
“There is some reinstatement work needed on the site next week which may require a further road closure. However, we will try to make sure this work takes place overnight and causes as little disruption as possible to motorists.
“The leak was reported to us through the National Gas Emergency phone line and we’d always encourage anyone that smells gas or suspects carbon monoxide to call the National Gas Emergency Service immediately on 0800 111 999. This line is in operation 24-hours a day, seven days a week.”
