Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the gas distributor for the North of England, is carrying out essential work to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in Scarborough.

The ageing metal pipework is now being replaced by new, more durable plastic pipes, to ensure a safe and reliable supply of gas to customers now while getting the network ready to transport alternative greener fuels such as hydrogen in the future.

The project began in December and is expected to finish in April, having been planned in collaboration with North Yorkshire County Council.

So that engineers can carry out the work safely and efficiently, and to protect the public, some traffic management measures are now required.

Temporary two-way traffic lights have been introduced on Falsgrave Road, at the junction of Scalby Road, and will be in place for approximately three weeks.

There will also be a lane closure placed on Falsgrave Road from 31st January for the remainder of the project.

From 21st February, there will be multi-way lights placed at the junction of Falsgrave Road and Seamer Road for the remainder of the project.

Signs will be displayed for motorists and advance warning signs put in place.

While the majority of the work will be carried out in the street, engineers will need to access customer properties to complete the project and ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas.

Scott Kitchingman, Business Operations Lead for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these essential works. However, it is vital we complete them in order to continue to maintain a safe and reliable gas supply to the residents of Scarborough.

“NGN is continuing to carry out its essential activities while following strict guidelines for safe distance working, where possible, and following good hygiene practices as we continue to live with coronavirus.

“We want to assure residents and road users that we will be working hard to complete this essential scheme as safely and as quickly as possible.”
While all of NGN’s work has now resumed, extra safety precautions remain in place to keep everyone safe while we continue to live with Covid-19.

For further information about the work please contact NGN’s Customer Care Team on 0800 040 7766 or email: customercare@northerngas.co.uk.
