The North of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is carrying out essential works to upgrade the gas distribution network in and around Church Lane and Acklam Road, Middlesbrough.
The £140,000 project is part of NGN’s ongoing investment in the gas infrastructure in the area and involves replacing around 2,000m of existing metal gas pipes with more durable plastic ones. This will ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.
The works have been carefully planned in conjunction with Middlesbrough Council. In order to carry out the work safely and efficiently it will be necessary to close the Church Lane and Acklam Road junction for around three weeks from 29 July. As of today (Monday 5 August) the southbound lane of Acklam Road will also be closed for two weeks.
Steve Storey, Site Manager for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We have been working closely with Middlesbrough Council to carefully plan these works and will be doing all we can to minimise disruption to customers.
“I’d like to thank everyone for bearing with us while we complete these essential works.”
