Update: Essential upgrade to Ilkley gas distribution network

The north of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing around £27,000 to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network in Railway Road, Ilkley.

The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in the area and involves reinforcement work to the gas network to maintain pressure during the winter months in Ilkley. This is to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.

The project, which began on Monday 5 September, has been planned in conjunction with Bradford Council to ensure all works are completed with as little disruption as possible.

In order to complete the scheme safely and efficiently, a road closure has been placed on Railway Road at the junction of Nelson Road for the entire project, with a fully signed diversion in place for motorists and access for pedestrian maintained at all times.

NGN Customer Care Officers from NGN have door-knocked local residents and businesses and sent letters to make them aware of the work, while shops and businesses will remain open as usual.

Due to the complexity of the engineering works required, the project been temporarily paused in agreement with Bradford Council from Thursday 8 September.

Engineers will return to site on Monday 12 September when works will resume.

The road closure and diversion will remain in place during this time.

Dean Woolley, Network Officer for Northern Gas Networks said: “We have been working closely with Bradford Council to carefully plan this essential project and are doing all we can to minimise any disruption to customers.

“We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused and thank our customers for their patience and support in getting them completed as quickly as possible.”
