Engineers from Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the gas distributer for the North of England, will begin emergency repair work on a gas main at the junction of Bridge Street, North Street and Skeldergate in York on Wednesday 12 June. It is anticipated that the essential repair work will take two weeks to complete.
In order for the work to be carried out as safely and quickly as possible, the existing four way traffic lights at Bridge Street, North Street and Skeldergate will be turned off and replaced by a temporary traffic light system. Pedestrian access on all footways will be maintained and a temporary pedestrian crossing will be in operation.
A 100m stretch of Skeldergate will be closed to traffic from the direction of Bridge Street with diversion signs in place. Traffic heading from the direction of Bishopgate Street will have access to Skeldergate up to where the works are taking place.
Chris Keith, Site Manager at Northern Gas Networks said: “We’re working closely with City of York Council and we would like to thank customers for bearing with us while we carry out these essential repairs. We know this is a very busy junction, and can assure motorists that everything will be done to complete the work as quickly as possible. We would advise motorists to take an alternative for the duration of the work, if practical.”
