Engineers from Northern Gas Networks (NGN) will begin essential gas mains repair work on Wakefield Road at Aspley in Huddersfield from Friday 10 March.

Teams have been closely monitoring a controlled gas escape at the junction of Wakefield Road and St Andrew’s Road, and will be carrying out repairs to fix the pipe in a project expected to last around three weeks.

The work has been carefully planned in collaboration with Kirklees Council Highways in order to minimise any disruption to customers.

So engineers can complete the repair as safely and quickly as possible, some temporary traffic management measures will be introduced.

From Friday 10 March, two lanes of the inbound A629 Wakefield Road heading towards Huddersfield town centre will be closed to traffic and there will be no right-hand turn for traffic into St Andrew’s Road while the works are carried out.

NGN will continue to assess the traffic management as work progresses and the measures in place may change depending on the complexity of the engineering work involved.

It’s expected the work will mean extended journey times for motorists, so drivers and pedestrians are advised to leave extra time for travel during the work.

Work will begin at 7pm on Friday 10 March, with teams of engineers working around the clock, seven days a week, to finish the project as quickly as possible.

NGN Customer Care Officers have been visiting businesses and residents in the area to make them aware of the work and will continue to provide updates throughout as repair work progresses.

Paul Sadler, Customer Operations Area Manager for Northern Gas Networks said: “The safety of our customers and engineers is our number one priority, and the traffic management is essential in ensuring the general public and our workforce stay safe at all times.

“We’re working closely with Kirklees Council Highways to minimise disruption to road users, residents and businesses while this essential repair work is taking place, and will continue to monitor and adjust the traffic management required as work progresses.

“We would like to thank customers for their patience at this time and apologise for any inconvenience experienced. We will keep residents and businesses updated throughout the work as we look to finish it as safely and quickly as possible.”

For further information about the work, customers can contact the NGN Customer Care team on 0800 040 7766 option 7 or email customercare@northerngas.co.uk
