The North of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is making a significant investment to replace the ageing gas main at Edgerton Road in Huddersfield.
The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in Huddersfield, to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come and is due to complete in March 2019.
In order to carry out the work safely and efficiently, and protect engineers and members of the public during the scheme, it has been necessary to introduce some traffic traffic management.
The existing four-way lights at the junction of Edgerton Road have been replaced with temporary three-way lights on Blacker Road, Edgerton Road and New North Road.
In addition, a road closure has been placed on Edgerton Grove Road, with a fully signed diversion route taking motorists to the A640 Trinity Street, Fitzwilliam Street and the A629 New North Road.
NGN expect to remove the temporary lights and the road closure by 6pm on Friday 22 February.
NGN’s Customer Care team have kept customers updated on progress throughout the project, and will continue to provide updates as the work continues.
Chris Nevison, 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”.
