Northern Gas Networks is investing over £120,000 to upgrade almost 1.5km of ageing metallic gas mains in Wakefield.

The project is part of Northern Gas Networks’ ongoing development of infrastructure across the north of England and will involve replacing existing metallic gas main with more durable plastic pipes to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to our customers in the area for years to come.

The nine week project commenced today (Monday 9th March 2015) in Madeley Road and work will progress towards Brooklands Crescent.

As part of this replacement project it will also be necessary to carry out work in the following roads:

Madeley Road

Cow Lane


Highfields Rise

Hatfield Place

Upper Hatfield Place

Newstead Lane

Brooklands Crescent

Warren Iveson, Construction Services Area Manager, Northern Gas Networks said: “Our Customer Care officers have been door knocking in the area to let residents know about the upcoming work and we will continue to keep our customers updated throughout the project via our website, Twitter, Facebook and the local media.

“We would like to take this opportunity to apologise to members of the public for any inconvenience this essential work may cause and thank our customers for their patience and understanding.”
