The North of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is making a significant investment to replace the ageing gas main at Wakefield Road in Hipperholme.
The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in the Halifax area to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas for years to come. Work will begin on 3rd January and is expected to complete on 9th February.
In order to complete the scheme safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to introduce some traffic management.
A road closure will be placed on Wakefield Road at the junction of Leeds Road from 3rd January until 25th January 2019. A clearly signed diversion route will direct motorists to the A649 Wakefield Road, A641 Bradford Road, Whitehall Road East and the A58 Leeds Road, and vice versa.
NGN’s dedicated Customer Care team have been speaking to local schools and businesses about the works, and will continue to update customers on progress throughout the project.
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”.
