Throughout the afternoon, engineers from Northern Gas Networks have been working to repair a gas escape on a medium pressure main on Anlaby Road, Hull. It is believed that a third party contractor working on site struck the main with their equipment.
In order to carry out the repair work safely and efficiently, the emergency services closed the road in both directions. The gas escape has now been secured. All roads have now reopened and residents have returned to their homes.
Repairs to the gas main will continue this evening.
Northern Gas Network’s Customer Operations Area Manager, John Pickering said:
“We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience this incident caused motorists and the general public, however, safety is our main priority. I can assure everyone that we will continue to repair the pipe as quickly as possible.”
