The north of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £120,000 to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network in and around Stanningley Road, Leeds.

The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in Leeds and will involve replacing 100m 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 Monday 3 April and last approximately three weeks with an estimated completion date of 21 April, has been planned in conjunction with Leeds City Council to ensure all works are completed with as little disruption as possible.

Works will take place on Stanningley Road and Swinnow Road.

In order to carry out the work safely and efficiently, four-way temporary traffic signals will be placed on Stanningley Road at the junction of Swinnow Road from Monday 3 April for the full duration of the project.

The lights will be manually operated during peak times to ensure a smooth flow of traffic.

In addition to the lights, there will also be a road closure introduced on Swinnow Lane from Monday 18 April for one week, with a signed diversion clearly displayed for all motorists.

Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times with engineers working Monday to Friday from 8am and 5pm, with possible weekend work carried out at the request of the council.

Russ Oxley, Construction Services Area Manager Northern Gas Networks said: “We have been working closely with Leeds City Council to carefully plan these works in order to minimise any 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.”
