The North of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is carrying out emergency repair works to a gas main on North Burns, Chester le Street.

In order to carry out the works safely and efficiently, it has been necessary to close North Burns from Pelton Fell Road to the junction of North Burns and South Burns until 1pm on Tuesday 7 November. A signed diversion is in place.

Andrew Coates, Site Manager at Northern Gas Networks, said: “The safety of members of the public is our first priority and we would like to thank customers for bearing with us while we carry out this essential repair work.

“We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to motorists and members of the public and I can assure you that we are working as quickly and safely as we can to repair the gas main.”
