Northern Gas Networks (NGN) the North of England’s gas distributor, is carrying out essential repair work on a medium pressure gas main on the A177, Thinford Road, Durham.

In order for this work to be carried out safely and efficiently, it has been necessary to implement a road closure on the A177, Thinford Road.

The road closure will be in place from 11:00am today (Tuesday 20 November) and is likely to remain in place for the remainder of this week.

A signed diversion route will remain in place for motorists until the road is reopened. Motorists are advised to leave additional time for travel while the work is underway.

Andy Coates, Site Manager at Northern Gas Networks, said: “We’re working closely with Durham County Council to minimise disruption to road users, residents and businesses whilst this essential repair work takes place.

“Our engineers will work extended hours throughout the week and over the weekend to complete this work as quickly as possible.

“In the meantime, we would like to thank everyone for their patience at this time and apologise for any inconvenience experienced.”

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