The North of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £475,000 to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network in and around High Street, Boston Spa.

The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in the area and will involve replacing 3.5km 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 10 July and last approximately 30 weeks with an estimated completion date of 16 February 2018, has been planned in conjunction with Leeds City Council to ensure all works are completed with as little disruption as possible.

Works will begin on High Street at the junction of Clifford Road.

In order to carry out the work safely and efficiently, two-way temporary traffic signals will be placed on High Street from Monday 10 July for approximately 12 weeks.
The lights will be manually operated all day every day for the first week then will be manually operated during peak times thereafter.

In addition to the lights, there will also be a road closure introduced on Grove Road from Monday 31 July for approximately three weeks.

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.

Northern Gas Networks is holding two community drop in sessions for members of the public who would like to find out more about this scheme.

They will take place at The Village Hall, 199 High Street, Boston Spa, West Yorkshire, LS23 6AA on Wednesday 19 April between 4pm and 6pm and Friday 21 April between 10.30am and 12.30pm respectively.

Russ Oxley, Construction Services Area Manager for 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.”
