Incidents on our network

There are 37,000km of gas mains in the North of England, and they all need looking after.

We’re always out and about replacing old metal gas pipes with new, more durable plastic ones, or carrying out emergency repairs to fix leaks and prevent interruptions to your gas supply. No one likes roadworks, and we work with local authorities businesses and residents to plan and deliver our work with minimum disruption.
