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 at Chat Hill, Bradford.
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 in the future.
The work has been planned in collaboration with Bradford Council and has been carried out under a road closure on Chat Hill Road since July 24th.
Due to the depth of the main and the complexity of the engineering involved, and in order to protect engineers and the public, the road closure will now need to remain in place until August 30th.
In addition to the NGN gas mains replacement project, Yorkshire Water will also be carrying out work under the same road closure during this time.
Businesses will remain open as usual, and a full signed diversion is in place for motorists.
Russ Kaye, Business Operations Manager for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these essential works, however it vital we complete them in order to continue to maintain a safe and reliable gas supply to Bradford residents.
“This is a complex project in terms of the engineering required, and the traffic management is in place to keep our teams and members of the public safe.
“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.”
