Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the North of England’s gas distributer, will begin essential gas mains repair work at Holwell Road, Hull starting Monday 21 January.
Engineers have been closely monitoring a controlled gas escape at the roundabout on Holwell Road, and will be carrying out repairs to the pipe. Gas supply to neighbouring properties will not be affected.
The work is expected to last for approximately two weeks, having been carefully planned with Hull City Council to minimise disruption to road users.
In order to for engineers to complete the repair as safely and as quickly as possible, some traffic management has been introduced.
Temporary lane closures have been placed on the inside lane of the Holwell Road roundabout, and on the outside lane of Holwell Road.
It’s expected the works will extend journey times, so motorists are advised to leave extra time for travel whilst the temporary lane closures are in place.
Russel Kaye, Business Operations Lead for Northern Gas Networks, said: “The safety of our customers and engineers is our number one priority, and the traffic management is essential in ensuring the public and our workforce stay safe at all time.
“We would like to thank our customers for their patience at this time and apologise for any inconvenience experienced. We will keep customers updated throughout the work as we look to finish as safely and quickly as possible.”
