The North of England’s gas distributor, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £33,000 to upgrade the gas distribution network in and around the Kirkleatham Lane, Redcar area.

The project is part of NGN’s ongoing investment in the gas infrastructure in the area and involves replacing approximately 300m of existing metal gas pipes with more durable plastic ones.  This will ensure the continued, safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for years to come.

The ageing metal gas main has required several repairs in recent years.  NGN has prioritised the pipe for replacement to minimise any inconvenience caused by future repairs.

Unfortunately NGN have had to extend the works by three- weeks due to engineering difficulties of excessive pipe depth and mains configuration, however this has been carefully planned in conjunction with Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council to minimise the impact caused.

Works started on Monday 17 September and will now be completing on Sunday 11th November.  It will be necessary to implement temporary traffic management measures to ensure the safe and continued flow of traffic whilst works are in progress.

From Saturday 27th October there will be temporary four-way traffic signals at the junction of Trunk Road/ Corporation Road and Kirkleatham Lane.  In addition, the two lanes on Kirkleatham Lane will be reduced to one lane traffic throughout the duration of the scheme.

It’s expected these works will cause some delays to journey times, so motorists are advised to leave extra time for travel whilst the temporary traffic signals are in place.

NGN’s Customer Care Officers have been door-knocking local residents and businesses to make customers aware of the work, while on-site signage will advise motorists of the work taking place. Regular updates will also be available on NGN’s website northerngasnetworks.co.uk, Twitter @NGNgas and Facebook @northerngasnetworks.

Shops and businesses in the area will remain open as usual throughout the project.

Nigel Pearson, Site Manager for Northern Gas Networks said: “We have been working closely with Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council to carefully plan these works and will be doing all we can to minimise disruption to customers.

“We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience customers may encounter and thank everyone for their support as we work to complete this project as safely and quickly as possible.”
