The North of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing more than £25k to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network in and around Hebden Bridge.
The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure and will involve replacing around 150m of existing metal gas pipes with more durable plastic ones. This will ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.
The project, starting on Monday (30 April) is scheduled to last two-weeks. This has been planned in conjunction with Calderdale Council to ensure the works are carried out with as minimal disruption as possible.
To carry out our works safely and effectively, temporary two-way lights will be installed on Keighley Road, approximately outside number 68, for the duration of the works. These lights will be temporally removed on Thursday 3 May until Monday 7 May to allow for the Tour de Yorkshire.
Chris Nevison, Business Operational Leader for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We have been working closely with Calderdale Council to carefully plan these works in order to minimise any disruption to customers.
“We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these works, and thank our customers for their patience and support in getting them completed as quickly as possible. I’d also like to ensure cycling fans that the works will be suspended from Thursday 3 May until Monday 7 May to allow for the Tour de Yorkshire to pass through Hebden Bridge safely.”
