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 New Road, Mytholmroyd, Hebden Bridge.
The main pipe is leaking and emergency repairs need to be carried out on this stretch of the network. So that engineers can carry out the work safely and efficiently, and to protect the public, some traffic management measures will be put in place during the works.
Due to the nature of the work, from the 4th December 2023 it will be necessary to introduce a manned 3-way temporary traffic light system at the junction of New Road and Burnley Road. Traffic will be monitored between 07:00 and 19:00 to minimise any delays and to keep traffic progressing through the junction as quickly as possible. This traffic management has been put in place in collaboration with Calderdale Council.
Nick Thersby, Operations Manager at NGN 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 Mytholmroyd.
“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.”
To ensure that works are completed as quickly as possible, our engineering team will be working 12 hours throughout the day, and we anticipate works to be complete within approximately 7 days.
For further information about the work please contact NGN’s Customer Care Team on 0800 040 7766 or email: email@example.com.
