Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the gas distributor for the North of England, is carrying out emergency work to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in Settle.
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 is expected to last for 3 weeks. It has been planned in collaboration with North Yorkshire Council. 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.
Three Way manned traffic lights on B6480 Skipton Road at the Junction of Cammock Lane, Access to The Sidings industrial estate will be open as usual.
Chris Green 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 to continue to maintain a safe and reliable gas supply to the residents of Settle.
“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.”
