As part of the essential gas replacement works on Kings Road, Harrogate – Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the North of England’s gas distributor, have identified further gas pipes that are in need of replacing.
Robert Hope, Construction Services Area Manager for Northern Gas Networks, said: “In a bid to prevent further works, costs and delays in the future, we have decided to replace these additional pipes as part of the current scheme.
“Unfortunately this will add an additional two-weeks to the overall project, but we will be working evenings and weekends to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible. I’d like to apologise, on behalf of NGN, for any inconvenience caused.”
The project is part of NGN’s ongoing investment in the area’s and will involve replacing more than 100m of existing metal gas mains with more durable plastic pipes to ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers for years to come.
