Gas has been reintroduced to the network after properties in the Brandy Carr Road and Batley Road area of Wakefield lost their supply on Thursday (22 February). Engineers have been working around the clock to get customers back on gas since Thursday evening.
Over 40 properties now have gas restored and engineers are in the process of visiting the remaining properties one by oneto safely restore supplies to the meter.
If you have been affected and your gas supply hasn’t yet been turned back on at the meter, please contact NGN’s Customer Care team on 0800 040 7766, option 3 and we will arrange for an engineer to come straight out.
NGN has set up a community drop in centre at Kirkhamgate Village Hall, Brandy Carr Road, Wakefield, WF2 0RS where the team is on hand to provide information and advice. Heaters and hotplates are also available for those that need them.
Hot food is also available at the drop-in centre, for customers currently without gas.
Russ Kay, Business Operations Lead for Northern Gas Networks, said: “I’d like to thank our customers for their patience suring this incident and for allowing us access to their properties last night and today, and for bearing with us while we work to return the gas supply to normal as safely and quickly as possible.
“The welfare of our customers, whilst working to safely restore gas supplies, has been our priority throughout this incident.”
