Engineers from Northern Gas Networks are carrying out emergency repair work to a medium pressure main outside the John Gill Ltd garage on Bedale Road, Bedale.
In order to carry out this essential repair work safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to close Bedale Road from 7pm tonight. (Fri 17 October.)
Northern Gas Network’s Customer Operations Area Manager, Gordon Thompson said;
“We are working very closely with North Yorkshire Council to plan the emergency repair work, and will be closing the road after the rush hour period tonight.
“The gas main runs down the middle of the road so unfortunately repair work can’t be carried out using traffic management. We will be using signed diversions so that motorists can get in and out of the town without too much disruption.
“We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause motorists and the general public and I can assure everyone that we will be working all weekend, day and night to repair the pipe as quickly as possible.
