The north of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £36,000 to upgrade the ageing metal gas distribution network in and around East Parade, Keighley.
The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in the area and will involve replacing 6m of existing metal gas mains with more durable plastic pipes to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.
The project, which will begin on Tuesday 27 December and last around four days, 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 works safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to place a road closure between East Parade and Coney Lane which will prevent traffic heading towards Cavendish Street. This will be in place throughout the project and a signed diversion route will be clearly displayed for motorists.
Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times, with engineers working from 8am to 5pm including New Year’s Eve.
Ian Cunningham, Construction Services Area Manager Northern Gas Networks said: “We have been working closely with Bradford Council to carefully plan these works during the school holidays in order to minimise disruption to customers.
“We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused during these works, and thank our customers for their patience and support in getting them completed as quickly as possible.”
