Work to improve the gas distribution network on part of the A61, Leeds Road near Harrogate, is nearing completion.
The project is part of Northern Gas Networks (NGN) ongoing investment in gas infrastructure in the area. It involves replacing 4km of old metal gas mains with more durable plastic pipes, to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.
The 30-week project began in April on the A61 at the junction of St George’s Road and Leeds Road. Temporary traffic management which was placed on Leeds Road on Saturday 27 October has now been removed although 50 metres of one lane of the dual carriageway will be closed until work is completed on Wednesday 14 November.
Steve Goodwin, Site Manager Northern Gas Networks, said: “We would like to thank customers for their patience during this essential work.
“This upgrade scheme will ensure a reliable, safe gas supply for homes and businesses for many years to come.
“No one likes roadworks, and we know the temporary lights have been a cause of frustration. Our thanks to motorists for bearing with us.”
