The North of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £560,000 to upgrade the gas distribution network in North Ferriby, East Yorkshire.
The project is part of NGN’s ongoing investment in North Ferriby’s gas infrastructure, to ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to the area for years to come, having been planned in close conjunction with East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
Work began in March this year, involving the replacement of more than seven kilometres of existing old metallic gas main, with more durable plastic pipes.
The final phase of the project will begin on Monday 11th November, and last two weeks. In order for works to be carried out safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to introduce a temporary road closure on Melton Road, between Narrow Lane and Parklands Drive.
NGN’s Customer Care Officers have been door-knocking local residents and businesses to make customers aware of the upcoming works, and a fully signposted diversion route has been set up with access maintained for residents.
David Johnson, Site Manager for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We would like to thank all our customers in North Ferriby for their patience and understanding while we carry out this essential work.
“We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during this time and are doing everything we can to complete the project as safely and quickly as possible.”
For further information about the project please contact NGN’s Customer Care Team on 0800 040 7766 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
