The north of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £240,000 to upgrade the ageing metal gas distribution network in Mountbatten Avenue, Sandal, Wakefield.

The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in the area and will involve replacing 2.7km of existing metal gas mains 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 project, which will commence on Monday 11 April and last approximately 20 weeks with an expected finish date of Thursday 25 August, has been planned in conjunction with Wakefield Council to ensure all works are completed with as little disruption as possible.

The work will begin on Stillwell Grove and progress to Stillwell Garth, Stillwell Drive, Stopford Garth, Stopford Avenue, Stillwell Drive, Mountbatten Avenue, Wingate Grove and will finish on Wingate Croft.

Paul Gordon, Construction Services Area Manager for Northern Gas Networks said: “We have been working closely with Wakefield Council to carefully plan these works and will be doing all we can to minimise any disruption caused.

“In order to complete the works as quickly as possible, our engineers will be working Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm. We endeavour to maintain access to residents and motorists at all times.
