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 Hartlepool.

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 for the future.

The work on Park Road will start on the 2nd of April at the junction of Elwick Road. This work will last for approximately eight weeks. It has been planned in collaboration Hartlepool Borough 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.

As of the 2nd of April, there will be multiway lights in place on Park Road at the junction of Elwick Road and a closure at the junction of Queensberry Avenue and Park Road for approximately two weeks. Following this as of the 15th of April there will be a full rolling road closure on Park Road from the Junction of Queensberry Avenue, working in 200-metre sections, up to Wansbeck Gardens. There will be access to residents only for parking within the closed section and access will be Via York Road only.

Steven Storey, Site Manager 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 Hartlepool.”

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