The North of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £785k to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network in and around Fairburn Drive at Garforth, Leeds.

The major project is part of NGN’s ongoing development of infrastructure in Leeds and will involve replacing 9km 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 began on Monday 8 May and is scheduled for completion in February 2018, has been planned in conjunction with Leeds City Council to ensure all works are completed with as little disruption as possible.

In order to carry out the work safely and efficiently, it will be necessary to introduce three-way temporary traffic signals on Ninelands Lane and Hazlewood Avenue for three weeks as of Monday 24 July. These lights will be manually operated during peak times in order to reduce queues as much as possible.

Due to Hazlewood Avenue being a bus route, there are expected to be some delays to bus services which we have advised the bus operators.

Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times with engineers working Monday to Saturday between 8am and 5pm.

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.”

For further information about the project please contact NGN’s Customer Care Team on 0800 040 7766 or email: customercare@northerngas.co.uk.

Anyone that smells gas or suspects carbon monoxide should call the National Gas Emergency Service immediately on 0800 111 999. This line is in operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
