The North of England’s gas distributer, Northern Gas Networks (NGN), is investing £720K to upgrade to the gas distribution network in St Marks Street area of Hull to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of gas to customers in the area for many winters to come.
Work is progressing well and in order to complete the next part of the project safety and efficiently it is necessary to put in place temporary traffic management from Monday 25 February. This involves closing alternate lanes on a small section of Holderness Road, near the Junction with Wilton Street, for eight weeks.
During this time there will be no access into Wilton Street and Williamson Street from Holderness Road and a full diversion route will be in place for road users.
The work has been planned in conjunction with Hull City Council in order to keep disruption to a minimum.
Site Manager for the project, Gerry Hart said: “We would like to thank all our customers for their patience whilst we complete these essential works. We know that no one likes roadworks and we are very sorry for the inconvenience caused while we carry out this planned upgrade to the gas pipes.”
Shops and businesses continue to remain open as usual.
