The north of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing more than £35k to upgrade the ageing gas distribution network on Huddersfield Road, Brighouse.
The project is part of NGN’s ongoing investment in the gas infrastructure in the area and involves replacing the existing metal gas mains with more durable plastic pipes. This will ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.
The project, which will begin on Wednesday 3 January and is scheduled for completion on Saturday 27 January, has been planned in conjunction with Calderdale 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 a number of traffic management measures.
Two-way temporary traffic signals will be in place for the duration of the works and will be manually operated between 7am and 7pm in a bid to ease traffic congestion.
There will also be two road closures on Lawson Road and Mill Royd Avenue at the junction of Huddersfield Road. Signed diversion routes will be in place for all motorists.
Whilst all traffic measures are in place, the pelican crossing on Huddersfield Road will be temporarily suspended and an alternative crossing will be provided. All existing bus stops within the works will moved to a clearly signposted location.
Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.
Chris Nevison, Business Operational Leader for Northern Gas Networks, said: “We have been working closely with Calderdale 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.”
