The north of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing in the upgrade of the ageing gas distribution network around Queens Road, Hull.
The project, which started on 20th May 2019, is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in the area and involves replacing over 500 metres of existing metal gas mains with more durable plastic pipes, to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers for years to come.
All work has been planned in conjunction with Hull City Council and is being carried out during the school summer holidays to minimise traffic disruption.
In order to complete the next part of the work safely and efficiently, it has been necessary to introduce some temporary traffic management.
Three-way traffic lights are in place at the mini roundabout at the junction between Queens Road, Princes Avenue and Princes Road. These will be in position until Sunday 1st September, and will be removed in time for the return to school on Monday 2nd September.
It’s expected that motorists will encounter some delays while the traffic management measures are in place, so are advised to find an alternative route for the next two weeks or leave extra time for journeys.
Gerry Hart, Site Manager for NGN, said: “We would like to thank all our customers and commuters for their patience while we carry out this essential work to modernise the gas network in Hull. We are very sorry for the inconvenience the work is causing and we’re doing every we can to complete the project as soon as possible.”
