Engineers from Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the North of England’s gas distributor, are continuing to work to restore normal gas supplies in the Brandy Carr Road and Bately Road area of Wakefield.
200 properties are currently without gas following damage to a gas main.
NGN has set up a community drop in centre at Kirkhamgate Village Hall, Brandy Carr Road, Wakefield, WF2 0RS where the team is on hand to provide information and advice. Heaters, hotplates and free vouchers for hot food and drink are also available for customers while they are without gas.
Russ Kay, Business Operations Lead for Northern Gas Networks, said: “I’d like to thank our customers for their continued patience while we work to restore gas supplies to customers in the Brandy Carr Road area of Wakefield.
“Work is progressing well and we now need to access the remaining few properties to safety turn off gas supplies at the meter, before we can start work to reconnect the gas to the main. If our engineers have not yet turned your property at the meter, please contact our Customer Care team on 0800 040 7766, option 3.“
Anyone that smells gas or suspects carbon monoxide should call the National Gas Emergency Service immediately on 0800 111 999. This line is in operation 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
