Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the North of England’s gas distributor, will begin essential gas mains replacement work in the junction of A182 Beatrice Terrace and Westbourne Drive, Shiney Row from Monday 28th October until Thursday 31st October.
The work has been carefully planned in collaboration with Sunderland City Council to be carried out, outside of the school term dates to minimise disruption to customers and road users. In order for engineers to complete the work as safely and quickly as possible, temporary three-way traffic lights will be used on the junction for the duration of the work.
We understand that the Shiney Row roundabout is already busy and we will aim to complete this work as quickly as we can.
Darren Pearson, Site manager at Northern Gas Networks, said “The safety of our customers and engineers is our number one priority, and the traffic management is essential in ensuring the public and our workforce stay safe at all times.
“We would like to thank customers for their patience at this time and apologise for any inconvenience experienced. We will keep residents updated throughout the work.”
